Blacksnake Practice Run, Sunday April 6th 2014

Those runners interested in participating in the Blacksnake Practice Run on Sunday April 6th should meet Christine Bell  at the Lake Morris car park at 8.30am for an 8.45am start. Please allow sufficient travel time to get up Lake Morris Road. Also be mindful that there are continuing roadworks with traffic lights in operation. You might also consider car pooling with friends. There will be no food or water provided so runners must be self sufficient. Be mindful that the Blacksnake can be very arduous and energy consuming. There will be no course marking; however, maps will be provided and it is suggested that you run with at least one buddy. You will have the choice to run the full 34km or a shorter, out and back option. Carrying safety equipment such as snake bandages and whistles is advisable.
