More South African Running

stats of the week: run 58km, cycled 127km

The Red Hill Classic, a 36K run at the Cape Peninsula, extended my South African running experience. The glorious route started in Fishhoek at the Indian Ocean side, moved over to the Atlantic, went South along the coast to a place called Scarborough, crossed the recognisable Red Hill, down to the other ocean again at Simon's Town and back along the coast to Fishhoek Athletic Club grounds.

My personal performance was fairly satisfactoring as I managed a 6min/K pace all over the distance, kept running even on the challenging hills and felt relaxed at the finish and the days after. This time I received No 354 at the finish among around 1000 runners.

The days schedule was outstanding: wake up 2.30am, start driving 3.15, arriving Fishhoek 5.15, start 5.30, finish 9.07am.
