If it is the loop that starts/finishes at the Canterbury Falls bridge and includes the (old/new) Bruce trail a long edge and then that new'ish (last 10 years) trail that goes through the lowpoint between the hill and an adjacent ridge that is indeed a beautiful spot. Also, using the orienteering map as a measure of distance instead of a Garmin it is 350m long.
How about you throw on the 235 and walk the dog around the loop so you can post a visual reference up here?
Trigger the auto pause by any mailboxes for waypoints, or something.
What hammer said. It’s quite challenging at speed. The hill is a kick in the head the second time around and the roots get pretty complicated on the far side. Lots of light footedness required.
I know the route. However, back in the day I recall that we ran up the mtn and not around it....
That is exactly right. But that was the time of giants...
Though the time of giants was also a time where Trav needed a full pacing crew to barely scrape in a sub 40 10km, so maybe giants aren't all they're cracked up to be.
yeah and barely scrape a win at the Atacama Crossing.
good timing that you mention atacama...wondering about getting another remote stage race in next year. :)
What are some of the candidates? If they're able to happen, of course.
