Then it becomes stinking hot on the climb back up from the ferry.
Wouldn't miss it.

Rod, Burglar & some others start early - unsure if it's to beat the heat or get back quicker to some cold cans...

Regular 6am grouping. Feel free to pop along Action. Would be handy to get a handle of the opposition.

...but don't exect any "handle on this opposition".... I am in heavy training. am doing high miles. Dont' plan to cane it. Will be cruising. Am having a late night so won't be at my best. carrying an injury. I expect the weather will be too hot/cold/humid/wet/dry. Too hilly at this stage. Missed the ferry - twice. Dog ate my homework.

There has been no mention of the drink fairies dropping off drinks. So be prepared to start with plenty of fluids on board. There is a tap from memory just before Berowra ferry on the Hornsby side to top up.
If there are other taps please post.

Almost every year there are bushfires around New Year. This plays havoc with the run scheduling and communications to runners - as always check this webpage as it will give the very latest info on the status of the run. In keeping with the Fatass tradition (of doing whatever you want) there is no problem in starting early to avoid some of the heat.
Berowra Community Hall, at roundabout at junction of Crowley Rd and Berowra Waters Rd, Berowra, New South Wales. This is approx 35km / 20 miles North of the Sydney CBD, which is 30 mins to an hour's drive depending on time/traffic. Berowra is also well-served by a train line, the station being 500 metres from the start (New Year's Day usually has a weekend service). Finish Location
Same as start.

Family commitments mean I will not be able to put out the drinks at the 'Black Stump' this time around. Sorry about the late notice.
I will miss catching up with everyone, but I hope that normal service will resume on New Years Day 2013.
All the best for the New Year, and have a great run!

Min 14 Max 24 and sunny.
With only water at the ferry down and back, make sure you take a hydration belt or a camelbak with you as you have about 16ks from the ferry up to the Castle and back with no water.
Thanks for all the other years Jan. And Happy New Year.
