Kokoda Spirit Racing

Trials and tribulations of the KSR trail running team.

The Long Run – picture diary

On Sunday we all got together for our last long run as a team before the Kokoda Challenge in 3 weeks.  We chose a beautiful route from Springbrook to Binna Burra and back.  Here are a few images from the day.

Don’t worry mate at least there are only a few stairs back up to the car, about 500metres vertical worth!

Note to self: Must remember to shave nipple hair before applying tape next time.

42km, 2200m of climb and descent, 5 1/2 hours on the feet – job done 🙂
