I think that it’s a great idea that we start collating our fav run. No doubt it will make get the Australian Running Guide up and running.
My fav is the Beacon Cove / Beach Road paths. I’m sure lots of others run this too and may correct my distances.
Starting near Crown (Cnr Clarendon St & Whiteman St) following the tram tracks to Station Pier (approx 3km), Station Pier to St Kilda Pier (another 4.6km), St Kilda Pier to North Road Pier Brighton (another 4.5 - 5km) then turn around and head back. Total of 24-25km. There are about 10-12 water fountains between Station Pier & North Road Pier. At the city end you could also join up to the Capital City Trail.
One of the best things about this run is that there are only 3 roads to cross each way, all in the first 3 km.
Hope to see some coolrunning T's on this run soon. :)
