Entire length of the Great Victorian Rail Trail starting in Tallarook and finishing in Mansfield.
After a freezing cold 4am start, I chipped away and managed to stick to my 10km per hour target. After 40km I started to suffer and the thought of another 80km was very daunting, but I set targets and simply plodded along. Running with others was a massive help in the back half ... huge thanks to Eliza, Laura, Brad, Sarah and Tallin for accompanying me on some sections and to Christine for helping with logistics. Mission accomplished.
