Race 1 Atmosphere
With just over a week until Race 1 Huon Hill its exciting to think about the experience about to unfold.
'Huon Hill, yeah I'm going to give that one a crack this year', has been said to me often enough to believe we will be getting a fresh mob of trail runners on the course. I've been meeting a lot of new runners and past competitors that are keen to grow their experience on the trail running field. We should see record numbers for this event - Bring a mate!
A few confirmed and rumoured front runners sets the stage for an on the edge encounter up front. There are so many variables across this course, playing with our strengths and weakness. Could we see a course record fall? Its highly possible in both the male and female races.
