My maps are telling me 8kms each way, so approx 15-17kms is my best guess. Meant to be a nice day so views could be epic but as always prepare for bad weather - I'll have normal running gear plus thermal, beanie, gloves, nutrition (gels and/or jellybeans/bar/PBJ sanga/banana). A good test of being on your feet for a couple of hours and enjoyable team run.
