Commonwealth Champs Course

Here is the course for the Commonwealth Ultra Distance Trail Running Championships in Wales that I have been selected for. It is in September. Friend and No Roads and now Australian teammate Mick Donges found this and shared it with me. My initial thoughts were 'they call this a trail running course???'. You would think that from the land of the fells they would include some climbs but I guess they didn't want to cross over on the Mountain Running side of things too much as that is another separate component of the championships. The more I look at it though, the more I think this type of course is more suited for me. It's 5 loops of this course to make it 55km in total.

I am very honoured to be selected. This will be the third time I've represented Australia, in three different disciplines; ultra road running, mountain running and now trail running. I have the added honour of being named captain of the trail running team.
