With my two best mates running this race too and having done the 5km course a few months before I was looking forward to this race. All trail so a bit of a scramble at first with cones and bends getting in the way. I latched onto another female runner and we followed each other around the first 5km lap.

After around 6km I began to sweat and the girl took the lead on me. Eventually on the 8km I picked up again and got a good pace to sprint to the finish line. The route is quite flat but the sand makes it hard to get a perfect pace going. A most enjoyable route.
