The 2007 BRT Run is scheduled for August 19. As those who have taken part in previous years can attest, this is an ideal training run in the lead up to the Melbourne Marathon. In 2006, 88 runners took part - can we crack the century this year??

Full details including information from previous years can be found at www.ultraoz.com/bellarine. Some may note that the 68km option from previous years doesn't appear in the title - visit the homepage for full details!

I will jump in quickly, as one of the 68kers last year, to have little regrets for its demise as a return from Queenscliff.  It was rather lonesome and arduous on the way back.

But, I have another crazy notion, which is to stay in Queenscliff the night before, and then make my way to the start in Geelong in time to run back to Queenscliff with the 100 plus entrants in the 34 kilometres.

I suppose you can imagine how I might get to the start.  Anyone who would like to join in will be more than welcome (but I don't mean sharing a taxi fare). :yahoo:

Some good news - Troopy is onboard to support the run again this year, making it 4 years straight.  It works out ideally for his lead up to the Berlin Marathon in late September.

Little K, with your many appearances in Melb already this year, you must have some frequent flyer points to get down to the BRT run again! Great work on you sub 2:40 effort at GC yesterday.

I'm interested in this one. I love running near the beach. Can't help being slightly crazily inspired by the idea of what 68km feels like, I'd say the inspiration might wear off after 34km.

Ok so was totally interested but... What is this about Snakes and Spiders in the waiver. Ok I sound like a wimp but me and arachnids and reptiles, we just don't like each other. I don't like what they look like and what they can do to me and they don't like being deafened by my screams. People at school thought I didn't have a voice until I went on my first Hike and met a spider in it's web. I think theirr ears are still ringing. So just asking for a bit of reassurance here is it common to see them and are they big. I am still totally interested, it could just mean I run faster in fear of meeting one. :p  :p

Thanks Brett. A bit slower that the goal, but a PB so cant complain too much.

Yeah i should just move back to Highton, it'd be cheaper than flying down every mth or so!

Felisaffie the waiver is modified from the general fat ass waiver that can be found somewhere on the fatass website. If you see any such creatures, it is highly likely that you are heading way off course and / or running far too slowly! If you want to know more about the trail, you can have a look at the photos from 2006 - the link is on the webpage.
Cheers.

Thankyou so much that is a great relief. Good incentive to run fast just at the thought though. I think I'll use it as a strategy to keep me on my heels. Was thinking later that any such creatures if in existence would scatter in hiding just at the sound of a whole group of runners so definitely not a logical fear. Thankyou for the reassurance and the reference. We went down to the beach today and it was perfect. I'm grateful for any excuse to go for a run across the countryside down that way.

This was one of my favourite runs I participated in last year. I was looking forward to joining in again in 2007 but my running form has been particularly lame lately.

I wonder if it is not too late to pull the finger out and start training for the distance??

It's near the beach, not that you actually see much of it on the run until towards the end. Great flattish trail though, reminds me a bit of the Warby trail width wise, typical old rail trail but not quite as boring. Didn't see any spiders or snails last year, just bumped into awiseman around the 20k mark :p

G'day Awiseman,

I wouldn't mind joining  you in your proposed early morning (mis)adventure however, I will need to speak to Mrs FiIK first. I'll chat to you offline when I come back from the Gold Coast next weekend.

I always wanted to give this one a go but something always got in the way. Hopefully not this year.

Sadly for me something has got in the way - my crumbling body!

I realise that I need to really focus on getting my knee right after Comrades, and it wouldn't do my right foot PF/bone spur thing much good either.  Aside from the fact that with a month on minimal slow kilometres after Comrades, I am in slow decline.  Even the 34 would be more harm than good I fear.

It is a great run though and it is in the diary for next year.

I hope you all get the same glorious weather we had last year.

Hi FiIK & Awiseman,
First time on one of these blog things.
If Awiseman is who I think you are we did speak about doing the early start, saddened to hear your out.
I'm still keen, so FiIK, if your in I'd be happy to chat more about an early start from Q'Cliff

Yes Brett, the same.

Hopefully by mid august I'll be able to run a comfortable pain free ten kilometres, but even one way would be too much.

All the best.

I had good intentions of adding to the list of starters up until last night.  Heading off for a brief run [with Chilliman of all people, and a few others], I had a massive fall and now boast a sore and very swollen ankle.     Maybe I'll get down there as a spectator.

Chilliman, I do apologise for my inconsiderate actions last year and drinking that beautiful latte in front of you before the start and then jumping in 13km down the road to just do 21km.
This year I will go hardcore like you and go without the coffee and do the whole run + extra to make up 3hrs. Am considering actually starting at the Geelong Railway Station and running through to picking you guys up and then onto Queenscliff. Why? Sounds better in the diary that I ran from train station to train station!!

See you there.

So as we get nearer to the date, how many others do we have for the 5min pelethon? There seem to be a few from the SC run a couple of weeks back that were in that group, so we could get a few together again and hold that pace. After all it is only a training run  (that's just a reminder for Diane and Sam    :LOL: ).
My guess, looking at the start list, we could have me, Eat Em, supersam, DianeE, Lavinia G, chilliman and padymelonpete (and hopefully Spark Driver). Anyone else I've missed?  
Spark Driver - I hope the training has been going well, would love to see you on the 5min bus again this year.
Now by my reckoning 34kms at 5min pace gives us a run time of 2.50. If Troopy is hoping to run 3 hours, then this may be my only ever chance to finish before him.  B)  (Of course he's welcome to join us if he wants to).

G'day all,

I don't think I'll ever get to do this run. I have to bail for yet another year because of a family engagement (plus lack of training).

Hope everyone enjoys the run and maybe I will get there next year.

I'm interested in this, but not sure if I will do an out and back or just the 34k.

Sounds like there will at least be someone to run with either way, although it looks like quite an early start from Queenscliff. But then driving from the outer eastern suburbs on the day of the event would also mean a very early start.

I have another commitment down for the day so I will have to see if I can get out of that first....

It has been 3+ weeks since I came down with the flu and only in the past 3-4 days have I been able to to run without sounding (and feeling) like I am about to collapse and die!  

I haven't run any more than 10k since the Princes Park run so I don't think you will see me even getting near 5min pace Tiger Boy.  

I will still go and plod 34km just for fun and take it slowly.

Sorry all but I've been booted off the 5min/k bus for the run on Sunday. Haven't run in 2 weeks nursing a foot injury that's not progressing as quick as I'd originally hope for.

Have a great run and I look forward to hearing all the reports and seeing you all at the MM.

Thanks to those who have thus far registered their interest in the run on Sunday. Numbers have swelled to 70 currently and hopefully we may enjoy some ideal weather for a 34km run.

Those who have registered their interest to me directly, should have received an email tonight with a few last minute updates. If you are thinking about running and didn't receive the email, I've also posted it on the webpage.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday.
Cheers, Brett

good luck to everyone on sunday.  If anyone is struggling on Sunday, I guess I'll take the blame for thinking of the original concept!  ....but enjoy the scenery and that will take your mind off it!

Sorry to hear that Daph, hope the Ferny Creek run wasn't to blame.

Yes sorry to hear about your shins. Stress fractures can be a real problem. That is one of the key reasons I only run 4 days a week so I can have my legs recover.Hopefully we will catch up for the next run up at Ferny Creek.RegardsJunkyj :LOL:

Great day for a run on the trail. Huge turn out for a Fatass event. Congrats to Brett for organising this event and thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their time for us. :LOL:
