For those athletes looking for another event try the Bare Creek Trail Run. The run starts/finishes at St Ives Park Primary School and follows the fire trails through the Garigal National Park. There are two courses a 9km and a 6km. The 9km has cash prize money and the 6km has donated prizes. For full details and entry visit: http://www.barecreektrailrun.com
The 9km course is set over quite a challenging terrain profile (see the website for the profile map) so entrants may find it an interesting challenge/competition or enjoy the lovely bush views!
