Was just looking at my calendar..... TNF May 14
Singapore Sundown Marathon May 28.... that gives me the weekend in between to do something in my own backyard... maybe not the 60km version.
Chris, why do you follow roads when there is some great track and beach to follow?
Would love to put an aid station out the back of my place
Re: the course. It just happened that way. I remember considering a few options regarding the route including "the famous" Curly to Dee Why headland, Dee Why - Long reef beach + long reef headland, Turimetta headland and turning at the Palm Beach lighthouse. The current route turned out to be exactly 60k, which I thought was a good round number.
Running Dee Why beach like both you (I assume) and I regularly do, would put people off, particularly when the lagoon is flowing and people would need to get wet feet
The altenative route along Pitwater road is not ideal, but not too bad. Plenty of other scenic sections to make up for it.
I decided against the Curly to Dee Why headland as I couldn't stand running past those snobs in their mansions
Maybe we could all make a detour and finish at 56k for a BBQ at yours
