It’s time to get back to Terrey Hills. #MWCCCX

For those of you not familiar with the grounds, we run on a mix of a large grassed area, use a bit of criterium circuit, through some sand relocated from Manly Beach, some trails cut through thorny bushes, and a bit of transition in between.

For this event, we’ve drawn some inspiration from the Bogense world champs course.
