From the mass start, we were off on a quick lap of Adelaide High school, which is basically just one building but with lots of 'fingers', then west along the edge of the ovals to the patchy bushland strip alongside the railway line, where we all got different versions of the map, depending on how various people had drawn it during Manu's mapping workshop the other week. Then we crossed over Sir Don into an area I'd never been before, and which we never used to go into when training from Western Districts because it was basically where homeless people camped. But now it's been turned into (regenerated) native forest with a wetland running through, and an interpretive trail where the rocks have either engravings or bronze sculptures - many by Silvio Apponyi; the trapdoor spider being one of my favourites - and this was just lovely to navigate through, and lots of fun. Ended up as a fair distance to be running hard, so Zara and I went for a bit of a warmdown to find even more sculpture rocks, the smallest of which hadn't made it on to the map but still had creatures upon them.

Hurried to get to West Tce because I was running late, and managed it in about 20 min, but took the return trip at more leisurely pace and in the company of Cazzolatos for the first half, incorporating Toby's 'long cut' through the cemetery. Some impressive mausoleums in the Italian section!
