The second of four official training runs for Five Peaks.
This training run is the second section of the 58km course – approximately 16km from Norton Summit to Cleland. Having done 3 of the Five Peaks in the first training run, this run takes you over peak #4 – Mt Lofty. There is also a 12km option, taking an unmarked shortcut to skip Horsnel Gully. The courses won’t be marked for this social run so you’ll need to download the Guru (ex Galileo) app and the gpx files so you can navigate your way around the courses.
The course takes you on a quick diversion up to the Summit plaza, clockwise around the monument, then back down again. Take care as it is a busy area. On race day in April this will be the spectacular location of an aid station. For runners on Sunday there is a drink fountain there for refilling your water as well as a toilet
Meet at the Cleland car park, near the toilet block, at 6:15 in order to car pool to Norton Summit for an 7:00 a.m. start. We are relying on runners to self-organise car pooling and there should be plenty of others to pool with.
The Cleland gates will be open from around 6:00am.
Your volunteer leader for this run is Claire.
Mal and Merry, our wonderful volunteers who provided the amazing spread at our previous training run, will be waiting for you at Cleland with a delicious array of food again.
