Lovely route. I only made one wrong turning (I didn't cross the field diagonally) but thanks to the accuracy of the directions, I was able easily to find the route again.

Went over to this one earlier this week. Had the car broken into, fortunately they didn''t get anything worthwhile but be wary of using the car parks and/or parking elsewhere. Nice route though.

Hiya I ran this route on 27 Jan while in the area. What a stunning route, some beautiful scenary, and the finish along the side of the dam was a real test......with such a strong wind blowing across the water. Thanks for posting this run, will definately do it again, hopefully the sun will be shining to enhance the great surroundings.
