Started run in Porteau Cove at 8:07am, ran original route (not the new trail detour) to Cypress.

Each of us carried 2-3 litres of water and used one stream about 7km in for one fill up of a 500ml bottle.  Ran out of water near 8km from the end of the run (it was around 22 degrees in the middle of the day) despite it being October- still got some tan lines!

Wasp nest about 5km up the trail near a waterfall crossing- 3 wasp stings.  No bear sightings, however, they mentioned a bear was at Brunswick Lake.

Laurel's Strava picked up full segment, we ran all together.
