After some concern at the finish line that the Garmin Edge 500 had only recorded 92.2km, Bruce was relieved to find when he uploaded the data to Strava that 96.6km had been recorded. Still not quite the 100km, but close enough!
While the kilometers logged are a bit shorter, I’m sure Bruce will be happy that the stats also show a moving time of 11:59:07. While he was happy with a sub 13 hour overall run, a sub 12 hour moving time is absolutely amazing.

If you click on the “Segments” button on the left of the page, you’ll note that Bruce has first place overall for a couple of segments, and holds positions in the top 10 for most of the recorded segments along the trail. Again, an amazing effort for a first timer.

Also, I added the finish line video to the previous post…
That’s right. First time running a 100k race, and he got sub 13. An absolutely amazing effort. He pushed it a bit in the final stage, and suffered for it at the end.
It was a great day out, in one of the most scenic parts of Victoria, on a beautiful Spring day. I’d hate to think what it would be like if the run was tomorrow – with a forecast of 13 degrees.
BW is killing it. 92km in ~11:59.
BW has just come through, looking drained (as you would after running 80km in ~10 hours) but in good spirits. Home stretch!
I’m hoping to catch him in Princetown, then on to the finish at 12 Apostles.

The Gables out: ~16:46
BW on the way in. He looked a little tired after a section with a bit of beach, and what he described as a 50km/h head wind. He still has his sense of humour though!
Ready to head out again for the longest section, ~3 1/2 hours is the estimate. Crazy.
Johanna Beach in: ~12:56
Johanna Beach out: ~13:07.
In ~11:03, out ~11:10.
BW made up a lot of time on his estimates, and is feeling good at Aire River.
It’s already busy here at official checkpoint 1. So busy I only just managed to snag the last camping spot for Checkpoint BW. First runners expected at 8:30, so I’ve got a bit of time to set up. it will only have been less that 22km from the start, so I’m expecting BW will still be warming up…
Approximately 2:30 until the next check point, so I thought I’d see if there are any photo opportunities. I’m stopped about 3k’s from the Cape Otway Lighthouse, waiting for BW to pass by.
Avg photos, but it is dark! More to come…
