We started our self-supported run at the bridge in Auburn, at 6:10am. We left one of our cars parked at the trailhead on Sharp’s Creek Line (22km) with additional food. We also placed three water jugs at along the trail for refilling our bottles along the way. The trail was in better condition than expected for this time of year, but there were some extra obstacles to contend with, as recent winds had brought down multiple trees. The biggest challenge was the intense wind when we were out on the road sections of the trail. Otherwise, a stellar day out with friends on a gorgeous spring day! (And a FIRST ultra for teammate Robyn!)
Wee typo! It should read Robyn McClinchey. ?
