Trail Run (Karkloof 50 miler ) 8:44:00 [4] 80.5 km (6:31 / km) +2269m 5:42 / km
shoes: Brooks Pure Grit 5.2

Run from Benvie Gardens to Howick, in cool conditions with an incessant drizzle. Pushed hard and had an awesome run - very stoked with the end time and result.

Started with single track through yellow wood forests and then into Mbona - a local and large eco estate. Caught Naomi at around 18km - she was doing the 100 miler and had reached the turn around point at about 6:40 and then Bennie Roux at about 20km. Gracious they are strong! Ran with Bennie to the next checkpoint where he had his pacers waiting. Climbed well up the Gilboa mountain and caught Lance C on the road going up. Awesome section climbing up through single track in the natural forests and then down through some flowing single track in pine, to the checkpoint at Rockwood. Felt fantastic up to this point (45km)but then hit a very slow going district Road section for 5km where I really struggled. Things improved once we were back in the Karkloof single track, and running sections I know well... But more district Road (ugh) on either side of the next checkpoint at the cheese shop and then into the avo farm for some more hills and warthog spotting (seems they like avos). Last section of about 8.5 km in the Umngeni nature reserve, which had awesome views although it seemed to take forever. Saw a hornbill!

All in all, a good day out. Probably should have been fitter (Although I think I'm the fittest I've been in a long time) but that's always going to be be the case! 2nd lady and 6th overall
