Buffalo Stampede 2015 - 78km in the Victorian Alpine region - 10:19
Julie running back toward me at the top of Buffalo (fullsize)
This event was not in my original plan for 2015, though nursing a bit of a
problem with my right aductor and glute I was feeling alright after six foot
to do some big stuff. This turned out to be a tough day out, the incredible
steep gradients on the first two climbs (and also on the way back the last
two climbs and thus the descents on the other side) were something to behold.
That we did over 1000m of climbing in the first 10km of running, including
4km of flat at the start and a descent to the bottom of a 500m valley in the
middle says something. This event lived up to the SkyRace tag really well.
Also the victorian alpine region is amazingly pretty and Bright is a great
town to hang around in.
Photos and a few words from my day out are here on my
2015 page. Thanks to Paul for his entry and to Dave, Julie and Alex for
the company. It was fun to catch up with Hanny and Graham down there too.
