In her pre event brief, Run Director Katrina Palmer welcomed visitors from Pakenham, Preston and Inverloch. It was a cool morning on the trail, and we welcomed the warmth of the sun filtering through the trees! The trail was in great condition as usual and is always so well maintained by the wonderful Wednesday warriors!

The usual support and encouragement was present on the course, however the lack of high fives given the current Coronavirus situation didn’t go unnoticed!
