After about 4.5kms of running along the Pipe Track we came to a sudden stop. Taahir pointed to the cairn on the rock ledge next to us and said, “Welcome to Three Firs”. After a few hops up the rock steps, he motioned towards Tammy and me to join him. No signs, random paths and what looked like a bit of scrambling ahead. Where the heck were we heading…?
The Fairview Dryland Traverse adventure trail race celebrated its 5th year in 2015 and I was fortunate to take part in this epic as a member of Team Endurohub. Four days of trail running up in the mountains, no cell reception and surrounded by other trail nutters… YES PLEASE!
Me: “You mean it’s a free race entry? No problem, I’ll be there”
I just can’t help myself when I hear the words “free” and “race entry” together. I’m compelled to say “YES!”
Luckily for me, I’ve been able to look back at those comp race entries with a smile on my face and a fun story to tell.
