The day finally arrived! We had been so looking forward to spending a night in Greyton and then competing in the Greyton Classic MTB and Trail Run challenge.
The kids were safely ensconced with Granny Allie and Aunty Lisa and we were on our way! First stop: Jeannes and Digz where we left our cars. Then we all piled into their very nice Trendline Caddy (yes, am totally spying this out as my next car!) and hit the road for Greyton.
Traffic was bad. Like intensely bad so we eventually pulled over to the One-Stop for a Wimpy dinner and waited it out.
Shortly before 8pm we pulled in at Zebra Moon Hikers Hostel....a bit of roughing it for us all tonight. We found our dorm and then headed off to Rockhoppers to register and get our numbers.
By now we were all lus for something hot n sweet so we ducked into a cute little bistro for coffee and malva pud. Nom
|Very stoked to finish our first race together|
I have to say - sleeping in a bag is an acquired skill! I havent done it for YEARS but thankfully I was warm, toasty and got a few zzzz's despite the noise of the other hostel dwellers. :-/

|Insanely beautiful scenery on the trail run route|

|Adults breaking in the beds at the hostel!|
|Brekkie - Hostel style!|
|Really need our own camping blankets...!|
|Post-race grins - happy girls!|
After Digz made it through his gruelling 45km MTB race we set off to find yet another gorgeous bisto where we all indulged in a fabulous, well earned lunch! The best lamb shanks in the world!
We are sold on coming back every year to do this race....and hopefully next year it will be the 21km!
