  • Did the 8k in 2019

    First time completing this run, it was probably the hottest run Ive done but given the crazy west were experiencing it was to be expected. I had never walked the trail before from Kilcunda only walked part from Punchbowl Rd so wasnt sure what to expect. Hillier than expected though. But signing up was easy and received enough, not too much correspondence. Nice to receive the health advice the previous day.
  • Did the 8k in 2019

    Organization of event was very good. I enjoyed completing the course but felt some sections were challenging under foot e.g exposed tree roots/erosion on path. I chose wrong footwear. Certainly some challenging hills.
