It's been a long time since I ran a circuit of Wanniassa. Years ago, pre GPS and other distance measuring methods, a group of us at work would run this and guess the distance at a bit over 14 km.
From work, I ran around the outside of Lake Tuggeranong to Athllon Dr, followed that up to Sulwood Dr, along to Erindale Dr then fast to an underpass to Monash. Back at the lake a short detour around the back of the Actew yard, then a knock on the front door of the depot to let me in.
Measured today by the Garmin, allowing for the detour to Monash, the estimate of 14 kms was fairly close. However, I would run it in just over an hour. Must have been younger back then.
Today was good, stopped to talk to Ernie W at Erindale, Ewen's mate, good for a chat with Ernie, finisher of many, many marathons and recorder holder in his age groups as the years went on. He still walks every day, mostly reading as he meanders along.
