Join this run with a difference, this run is all about HILLS! We will be exploring the hills of Box Hill and the surrounding area and you will be shown some hilly trails that are well off the beaten track. This route has been specifically designed to hit over 1000 metres of elevation in as short a distance as possible. Note that the route does NOT involve any hill reps, that would be cheating!
We will work our way through woodland, heathland and open fields. Some hills will be technical and some will have you on your hands and knees, scrambling to the summit. It will be a lot of leg busting fun and we will take the run at a steady pace, pausing at the top of each climb if we need to, this isn't a race but it will be challenging.
This run is perfect for those that are keen to get stronger on hills, fancy a challenge or are training for a mountain/hilly trail race.
Pace: This is not a race! We will run as a group and share this experience together. You should be able to run between 10-11 min/miles (6-7 min/km) on trails and have a good level of fitness.
Kit: A full kit list will be provided, I have Salomon Sense Ride 2 and Speedcross 5 trail shoes available to test, please state your size during registration if interested.
Getting there: Parking is available. Full details will be provided.
