Castlewood Caper trail race on the Peninsula. Just entered this for a bit of luxmore practice and a chance to run in some new areas. Awesome day for it, mean views the whole way. Steep uphill to start, took it cruisy power walking the steep sections. Moved up to the back of the 3rd-7th group around the tops and on the way down. Nice wee technical section before the second big hill put me into 5th, took my gel and pushed it up the hill (walking most of it as it was basically a vertical paddock). 4th place at top of the hill. Started pushing really hard on the decent (course record on the strava segment), but was still 30secs behind 3rd place. Didn't catch him on the beach, but did pass Jonah as he'd blown up pretty hard. Finished 3rd.
Pretty fun race, really happy I did it, pacing was good. Walking steep sections and going fast relaxed on the downhills definitely my best tactic, had enough gas left to push it along the beach as well.
Easy week before South Islands now.
