This is my third running of the Marysville Marathon Festival, and without any doubt the best and most memorable race yet. On the previous two races I competed (if I may call it that) in the half marathons, but year I decided it was time for the Ultra (50 kilometer, well 51 and a bit according to the Garmin). So why the most memorable running so far?
Easy. This year the weather made for an absolute spectacle. True to Melbourne tradition the weather had it’s own saying this weekend, by ensuring to dump the area with a splashy 100mm of rain on the Saturday before the race. The result, I am sure you can imagine, were super duper muddy trails!
I am still not sure why I ended up in this race. I love to go out for runs in the bush on the trails, but here was that event from Trails+, that organizes the best of trail runs, to come and run around the well known Tan Track in the hart if Melbourne.
