Big run, little bike

Mary and her local friend Jo, are in training for the Coast to Coast Multisport Race in February (Mary is doing the bike and kayak, and Jo is doing the running). This weekend they wanted a run so we suggested Captain Thomas, out to Godley Head, down into Taylor's Mistake and then up and over again into Sumner.

It took them about 1:45 and they looked pretty fresh at the end of it. We intended to stay ahead of them on the bikes but what with steep climbs and thick mud and our lack of fitness they pretty much stayed ahead of us most of the way!

I reckon that is a pretty awesome run so I'm keen to have a crack at it one day soon.
