Race photos - Millarville
Sunday, June 17, 2012
Received from the race director on Friday: "If you're new to this newsletter, the course has a net loss of altitude from start to finish.
The highest point on the course is at roughly KM 3.5 and loses 69 metres in altitude to the finish line from there.
The course is undulating, meaning those 69 metres will be hard fought in some places. A hill of roughly 1.1 KM duration at roughly KM 14.5 - after a 3 KM downhill jaunt - will probably be your toughest challenge.
From roughly KM 6.2 through to the finish line, you will be on urban pathway or roadway under a "progressive road closure," meaning little or no vehicle traffic.
There is one half kilometre stretch through Turner Valley where you will be running on the right hand side of the road. Obey the instructions of the course marshalls.
The good news is there has been no manure spreading on the fields along the course this year!!! It was pretty pungent last year at KM 16.2."
