Trail Running race (Namaqua 3-Day Trail ) 1:34:24 [4] 15.11 km (6:15 / km) +474m 5:24 / km
ahr:151 shoes: Salomon Sense Pro 2 Blue

Day 3 of Namaqua Quest staged trail race.

The shortest day and knew that the other faster runners in my area would be gunning it. Lot of small track running up and down the nearby hills. I found myself in 6th place for most of the run, managing to pass Gerhard D. just before the finish on the last technical trail. (5th for the day). Still happy with the run though.

Overall dropped a position against one of the faster guys to end up 5th overall and 2nd in my age group. Beautiful course and would be keen to return in future.

Day 2 of the Namaqua Trail.

Missed the start gun as we turned up at the wrong start venue. Today was in the local nature reserve and the first hill went straight up a hiking track. I was about 45s late and had to pass a lot of people up the track. Caught the leaders at the top and led for a few mins on the technical descent before the leading 2 pulled away. I settled down nicely into tied 4th position and kept the pace going on rolling jeep tracks through to about 18km mark where I caught 3rd and got passed by the first lady at the same time. We recaught each other again at about 23km but I sensed they were running out of steam and pushed a bit harder. Opened a gap after the last water point at 25km and kept it to the end to finish in 3rd, moving me up to 4th overall.

Day 1 of the Namaqua 3-Day stage run just outside Springbok.

Drove down with Steph and Amadea the day before and stayed in a nice chalet south of town. Drought year and very few flowers as a result.

Started off well and had Eugene for company for the first trail, dirt road and off-track section up the hill to Toringkop. He pulled away a bit on the concrete downhill but I caught and passed on the flats after that. Nice old railway route heading back before more technical wash running just before the finish.

Ended up 6th for the day about 12 mins behind the winners.
