Griffiths Island Run.



The Chubby Hubby and Moi were still quite sore from yesterday's epic bike ride and so our trail run today was just a cheeky little 8km. run around Griffiths Island at Port Fairy.

 


The run starts here on this causeway which leads you out to the island. At the end of the causeway you step out onto the island which is very exposed. Next  landfall is the Antartcica.

 


The island is quite rugged in places with lots of beach rocks to climb over. The Antarctic winds were freezing.

 







The run then takes you across a small beach on the island. Soft sand ; a trails runners nightmare.



This is my fave bit, the Light House. I've always been fascinated with Light Houses and would love to live in one. The Chubby Hubby ran well despite having a sore butt from our bike ride.

 


I just couldn't resist jogging by the Light House. 


Thanks for visiting my blog,
Cheers Karen and the Chubby Hubby.
