The race is on again! It was a cold and wet morning but fortunately not too heavy or too windy while we waited at Menzies Creek Station for the first runners to come through. Hubby and I were there approx 45 mins and there were a few others there too, rugged up to keep warm and dry, some out with their dogs. Once the runners started coming through there was a quick succession of a few hundred before the train entered the station. A total of 3300 runners I’ve been told for what is a very popular event up here in the Dandenong Ranges.
Congratulations to Craig Appleby of Cockatoo who was the winner.
