Entries are now open for this year's run. There are a number of changes all detailed on the website at http://www.brtrun.com.au

A few highlights:
* there is a new course with 17 & 34km options.
* there is a train involved in 2010!
* there is a fully online entry system
* the breakfast is on again at Gusto Cafe

And some things don't change - the run is still FREE!

Cheers, Brett Coleman

I'm in, for brekky too :rolleyes: . Though I'll miss the Geelong to Drysdale section, the out-and-back from Queenscliff to Drysdale makes sense, and the one-way plus train is a nice option for those who want a shorter run.

I registered for this as a training run for Melbourne Marathon.  I've never done anything like this before and am really excited.  Getting a bit run down and registering gave me a big boost.  Really looking forward to it.  I suspect my 6min/k pace will be slow compared to most running it - anyone else doing it running at this pace?

Edit: count me in for breaky

ican - I'm toying with the idea of running this as a melbourne training run, and my pace is not far off yours.

how are the creative ultraspirits going to convert this again into the "right" distance.

3 x 17 = 51 ?  :rolleyes:

How's the training going so far? This one is 7 weeks away. and are you also doing the Princess Park 30km which is 4 weeks away?

oo I didnt know about the princess park run but I think I'll be in NZ skiing over that one so will have to give it a miss. Training has only just started, I did GOM mara in May so am relying on a reasonable base fitness...! I hope! Did 18km long run last week and planning on doing long runs of 18, 24, 30 then easy week until taper time. Plus 10km run, hockey x 3 and RPM x 1 midweek, which I do already.  A bit slack on the running side of things, probably, but I dont want it to take over my life quite as much as it did in May!

hows your training going??

s023... Running M and myself - Cool, I thought I'd be on my lonesome at the back but looks like there'll be a few of us.  Finished the 30k Sri Chinmoy yesterday. Not sore today, which may be ominous...whenever DOMS takes an extra day to kick in it's always more painful.  So far so good though.

Noticed entries have hit the 250 mark, so who else is up for a 5 min bus ?

A great potential turn out Brett, hope you can cope with it all. :D

wow big entry :D

Im doing the 17 but not going to announce a pace. I have a plan in my head of how im going to run this. Im letting everyone else take off then starting my run that way i wont start too quick.

Main goal is to finish in one piece lol
To finish under 2 hours i will be ecstatic

To not get passed by too many of the 34 kmers would be nice lol although it will improve the view and give me more to chase lol

Looking forward to this one and hoping to run the 34kms in around 3.05-3.10.

Let's hope a nice tailwind kicks in at halfway...

At last count 83 in for 17k, the rest for the 34.

The BRT got a plug on 774ABC drive-time radio yesterday. Mona was on as a guest and a caller said how she was running the BRT this weekend. And Mona acknowledged Brett's efforts in putting this on as a great lead up for the MM.

As an aside Julia Thorn was also interviewed (as the first aussie woman to 100 marathons) to give advice on training for the MM.

I will be away and miss it yet again.

the outnback nature of it this year is convenient for those who want to come in by and leave by ferry. (me)

anyone else doing this.  there were only 2 of us on the ferry from sorrento last year..  and brett kindly arranged a volunteer to pick us up and drive us to the start... which is way beyond any reasonable expectation.

this year we can just wander on in from the ferry.

excellent numbers considering that the sandy point half is on the same day which would lessen the pool of people who can run that kind of distance.

I'll be backing up from the Alice Springs Marathon last weekend for this one. I will be taking it long and slow, so will probably start out slower than 6min pace. Who knows how I'll end up, but 3hours 40 might be an achieveable goal.

I have absolutely no hope of being able to run 34km on Sunday....but will probably come along and give it a go anyway 'cause the weather looks good!

Nice and slow, see how far I can go  :D

Entries now 273.
As I'm not experiencing any snap, crackle, or pop, I may as well enter earlier than Saturday cutoff...at least this says something for my confidence in toeing the start line, or in proximity with at least 272 others, in a good-enough state to go.

I did this event last year, and loved it.  Especially the snakes and biscuits at the end.  Unfortunately I have a commitment in Melbourne Sunday afternoon, so I have opted for Sandy Point Half instead.  Enjoy the run guys!

An email just sent out to all entrants from Brett:

Hi All,

So far so good with the weather forecast! There are some very important instructions below that I've kept as brief as possible but please read.

Registration:
Everyone must register (check in) at Queenscliff before 8.30am so we know who is on the course. Train payment ($10 for adults) will be here. Paid adults will get a "special" stamp!
We will also write your number on your hand for easy recording of times at the finish (feel free to do yourself if you want).

Safety:
I think everyone is aware that it's not a race - but if not, it's NOT!!
if you see anyone in trouble, please help.
there are doctors out on the course - 1 on MTB, 1 at 10/24km aid station.
there are road & train crossings - runners MUST give way & be sensible - special care if using mp3 players.
we are not the only users of the trail, please be courteous to other users.

Course:
Approx 300-500m into the course at both ends there are narrowings that will slow everyone - please take care & don't push!
17km runners from Drysdale will run straight towards 34km runners heading to Drysdale - please be careful at the start.
There has been a lot of recent rain. It will probably be wet in places so a spare pair of shoes & socks would be wise!
look out for any red/white barrier tape on trees / poles if you're not sure where to go - the course is easily followed, however.

Transport of belongings / Train:

this will be via the train - please drop your bag(s) on the train before it leaves - there will be someone there to direct you to the right place.
we will endeavour to keep bags safe but please avoid leaving valuables in them.
Boarding of the train at Queenscliff will be immediately after the run starts at 8.30am (relevant to spot prizes) - can drop bags off from roughly 8.15 for those running 1 way to Drysdale.

Changing your stated plans:

If you have changed you mind about the course you'll run, please if possible, email to let me know. Otherwise tell those recording numbers / times at the finish.
Cancellations - Don't worry about letting me know unless you planned to take the train or RSVP'd to breakfast. Then it would be useful for logistics to know.

Aid Stations:

please don't litter! There will be a container approx 800m up the trail from each aid station. Drop your rubbish anywhere near here & we'll collect it.
17km Runners starting Drysdale - make sure you mark any supplies as 24km aid station or they will have been packed up!!
there will be 2 tables - #1-130 on the first; #131+ on second - assuming my helpers get that right!

Breakfast (Gusto Cafe):
filling fast - the menu is now on the website under the breakfast tab.
thanks to those who have RSVP'd.

Spot Prizes:
I will actually draw this (online random number generator) on Saturday & bring the list of names to the start. This will save a lot of messing around at a time that may be cold! The first 2 names present on the start line will win the Skins vouchers, next 2 Team R4YL subscriptions & the next 2 Steigen prize packs.

Steigen Socks:
Steigen is a new brand of clothing started by Geelong runner Louie Rowan who ran for Australia at the 2006 Commonwealth Games (www.steigen.com.au). Louie is a good friend of mine & has been very supportive of running in Geelong by sponsoring a large number of events & clubs. His running socks are GREAT and the only socks I now train & race in! These will be available to check out & purchase on the day at $10 per pair for those interested which is fantastic value given their quality. They provided me with PB's at the 2009 Melbourne Marathon & 2010 Gold Coast Half - ok, I did some training also!

Look forward to seeing everyone on the day - hopefully with lots of sun!

Cheers, Brett Coleman

After looking forward to this run all year I'm afraid I'm beaten already by the flu.  Big lesson, if planning to do a marathon get a flu shot!!  So sorry I can't be there. Have a great run everyone and hope the weather is fine.

I am definitely looking forward to this.  Apart from a gentle 8k recovery run on Tuesday I have done nothing all week and I am going stir-crazy.  I don't know what pace will feel right on Sunday, but for me it is just a 34k recovery run after last Sunday.  Mrs Ponder is doing the downhill 17k, so I may even keep her company once I catch her.

See you there,
Mark

Profile here, seriously you will hardly notice the climb over 10k, a headwind could be the only hurdle thing to slow everyone down, but will then give a boost on the return, that is if there is any wind at all.

Start list at 283, minus a few withdrawals of course.

*** There are a number of hurdles on said course, as demonstrated by Tigerboy on previous occasions.

Great to see so many people running. Thanks Chilliman for adding the update & thanks Phil for the well wishes. As the original BRT organiser, you really should get back one year!

Re the course obstacles, they are simply barriers on the trail to stop large vehicles getting through. You can't miss them but it will be probably single file through them unfortunately - lucky it's not a race! I don't think they will cause too much of a hold up. At the Drysdale end they are about 200m into the run!.At the Queenscliff end they are at the train track crossing approx 400m in. There are very few barriers elsewhere on the trail.

Of note the Geelong to Queenscliff course in previous years had the same barriers about 200m in & caused no trouble.

Look forward to seeing everyone Sunday.

Thanks Brett seeings i managed to run into a wheelbarrow today it all helps lol.

Last run done and stayed in one piece.

sorry guys but im hoping for you to have a massive headwind on way out which would mean we get a tail wind all the way and will give me more chance of winning my bet. Hope you understand its nothing personal. But alls fair in love and war and this is war :D

Sorry Staypuff I was being sarcastic after TB's legendary hurdling a few years ago and face planting.  :D

I suppose I can't let a year go by without dredging up the old photo again from 2007 to show an example of the obstacles, i'm sure Eat`Em would  also approve.
