20/05/2012 – Joondalup 5km, 10km and Half Marathon – Neil Hawkins Park.
This is an almost flat course, except for a short 30-50 m long climb to the finish line. Except for that, just the typical up and downs around a small lake in Perth.
Weather was perfect for a PB: cool, sunny blue sky, very little breeze. Autumn weather in Perth can be gorgeous.
An awesome crowd, lots of WAMC (Western Australia Marathon Club) runners, plus NCTC (North Coast Tri Club) members and occasional runners. Another good thing is that this is a small race, and you can sign up before the event. A very friendly atmosphere. Keep track of your own time and position. Unless you are among the top 10, you wont see the results until after a few days…
About 330 1/2 marathon runners on a nice and smooth trail walk / bike path.
