Warning, Warning.

Yes, hit the panic button. The Twisted Sister's  and the Chubby Hubby's have been asked to organize the South Australian Trail Runners trail run for December.
Given our reputation for having absolutely no directional skills, the pressure is on and we want to prove all our doubters wrong.
Three of the Twisted Sister's live in the Adelaide Hills and as we do most of our training in this area, we have decided to plan the trail run along the Tom Robert's Horse trail, over Mt. Gawler and through the Mt. Crawford pine forests.


The scenery around here is spectacular and the trails are quite steep and challenging. We have been out on the trail the last 2 weekends, exploring, marking coordinates and planning a 20 km. run with 2 different loops of 10 km. each.

Chubby Hubby Mike planning the trail.

We have decided on 2 loops; one loop for those runners only wanting to do a shorter distance, with an additional second loop for those wanting a 20 km. run. We will be mostly on fire trails which means if it is a high fire risk day runners can leave the area easily. Also as the runners will only be on  a loop run they will never be far from help. Snakes are also more visible on the fire trails. 

Planning the trail run. You can see the trail go all up the hill.

Some of the scrub the run we will pass through.

Chubby Hubby Mike and Susi No Bum will cover the trail the day before the event to place plenty of markers. Our reputation is at stake here. 

Thanks for visiting,
