Test run around the monthly handicap course for next Sunday. Arrived early, parked car outside the main gate and spotted Kerrie T & Sam on their horses out for a ride. Chased them towards the gun barrel hill, chatted as we went to the new sign on the hill with " Wide Brown Land" made out of steel. Easier to read from a distance than up close.
Then jogged over to the Event Terrace to join around 30 others to have a look over the monthly handicap course.
Beautiful spring morning as we ran down towards the Tuggeranong Parkway, over to the power lines, turning at 3.5 kms to run back up the hill to the start. Running over the course is not as difficult as it looks, certainly won't be the hardest course we run.
Later, a run up to the eagle's nest on top of Dairy Farmer's Hill, great views over Lake Burley Griffin and around all 360 degrees.
A nice day like today next Sunday and we will have a great event. It should be a back marker's course in all events, but you never know. Some rain during the week and a nice muddy track will change everything.
