Well, I have shifted house for about the 3rd time since I have been home from Europe! But we are now settled in a place called Cambridge, which motto is “Home of Champions” but I will save that for another blog.
This place has got one of my favourite long runs, a hilly loop of about 35k which takes in Sanatorium Hill and French Pass Road. Its been a proven stomping ground of one of New Zealand’s great past runners Dick Quax. Apparently he has done a few laps around the circuit in his time. Dick was the world record holder for 5k in the 70′s and set a debut marathon time of 2hr11min in the USA, he was coached by John Davies, another champion runner out of ther Lydiard stable.
So I am looking forward to making this my weekly long run…. check out the map link below
