Back to Cowan (to Brooklyn)

So another weekend has passed and another day had on the trails. We are currently training for the Oxfam Trailwalker (maybe they should be calling it Trailrunner) in August, and putting some time in on segments of the track.

This weekend involved an out an back starting at Cowan to Brooklyn across a moderately technical section of single-track and fire trail. The great thing about the trails in this area is the challenging downhill sections and good level of elevation gain.Some of us are only just getting back onto the trails after a brief training hiatus/recovery – so the shorter distance was appreciated.

Salomon packs and gear still holding up well – but the endless pursuit of proper gear continues. Enduralytes are now a staple.

Excellent weather made for a great day out. Now looking forward to doing some ‘mountain repeats’. More to follow. =]
