Beautiful day to take in the big picture scene of Wellington:  The city far below, covered by a little morning mist, while next to us we hear the susurrating of the windmill. For some of the eight participating, this was a first, for some a pleasant repeat run, while others had run this way before, but not quite the same route.  In attendance: Christine Jones, Lyn Clark, Marshall Clark, Chris Watson, Howard Harman, Dave Hatfield, Ross Lake and Paul Rodway.

Early days yet, but so far the plan for the next scenic scamper (23 November) is at Battle Hill, to check out some of the trails and history away from the 2k loop where we compete for the Shaw Baton during the winter.  Ross Lake to lead.


For this month's run, we return closer to home after forays over the past five months to Johnston Hill, Red Rocks, Mt Kaukau, Belmont Trig, and Mt Lowry.  Meet at Caffe Mode in Kelburn (opposite St Michael's Anglican Church) at 8am.  Then we head through the Karori tunnel, to Zealandia, pass St John's Pool, and head for Wright's Hill.  Then up from the Glade (faultline) to the Wind Turbine, down the eastern side of the sanctuary, and back to Kelburn for a well-earned coffee and breakfast. 

All up, it's 12.2k with 370m of elevation gain.  Slower runners (such as the organiser) could take 1h35 to knock this one off.
