Run #1 Shadow Lake circuit - Lake St Clair
Date: Sunday 17th March 2013
This run will start and finish near front of the lake St Clair visitor centre. The course traverses the subalpine zone (which is why we are doing it in summer!), climbing up to just over 1000m. But don't let this scare you off, the track only climbs 270m over 6.5km and then of course the rest of the way is down hill! The track passes through some lovely areas of subalpine rainforest and pencil pines and incorporates two bridges across the picturesque Hugel river.
We will run the loop in an anticlockwise direction passing through Watersmeet (the start of the Overland track) on the way out before a gentle climb alongside the Hugel river and up to Shadow lake.
There are of course great views of the surrounding mountains including those closest; Mt Rufus, Little Hugel and Mt Olympus.
Entry fee: $30 per person
Run start time:9am at lake St Clair.
