Spur Summer Trail Run

This was the 3rd event in the Spur Summer trail run series, at B’sorah Luxury Tented Camp in Broederstroom. I made a fairly last minute decision to do this race, and very glad I did! I entered the “long” course, which was advertised as 13.4kms. The weather was perfect, overcast and cool. As always, I was keen to run hard and see how it went. It was a fast start, and I set off with 1 other guy up front. He was super strong and got a gap early on and kept increased it. I only saw him a few times until the 7k mark, then he was gone for good! I was in 2nd place all the way, with 3rd some way back. I had a good run in the end, and finished in 52:43, a few minutes down on 1st place, but happy with 2nd in a large field. The route was about 1.3k shorter than advertised, coming in at 12.1kms. Always enjoy running at B’sorah, it is a beautiful farm!
