Last weekend there were some BIG races on nearby! The SMH Half Marathon in Sydney and Ultra Trail Australia in the Blue Mountains.
Can’t say the city run appeals to me all that much, although it is one of the Sydney races. Too much road, too many people and crowds for my taste, but definitely some beautiful scenery. And faster times than anything I could do on a trail.
UTA on the other hand… I’ve seen so many posts on Facebook over the past few days from people completing the 100km, 50km or 22km races. The location is stunning, the number of runners is limited and the elevation involved is down right scary. At this point I certainly can’t do any of those distances, but long term… anything is possible, right? Maybe starting with the 22km in a year or two?
