Sat 15 Nov NARROWNECK NIGHT RUN 20KM & 14KM (NSW)
The Narrowneck Run is both splendidly scenic and refreshingly straightforward. From the main gate runners follow the only fire trail right out to its terminus at Clear Hill, then return. There are no significant junctions or deviations. There are no biting hills on Narrowneck as there were at, say, Mt Portal or Woodford Dam, but the track does roll with plenty of sharp ups and downs and on the return leg the gradual ascent from Clear Hill to the fire tower does take nearly three kilometres. The full option is an even 20 kilometres, a shorter option involves turning at the fire tower which makes a 14 kilometre run. Narrowneck is a long, cliff-bound peninsula which divides the Jamison Valley from the Megalong Valley. As you head out, on your left is near-pristine bush framed by the Warragamba Catchment; on your right is cultivated farmland with Jenolan and Kanangra on the far western horizon. At the turnaround views of Lake Burragorang (Warragamba Dam) are quite clear and the Wild Dog Mountains are arrayed below you. contact: Running Wild. email: runningwildnsw@gmail.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
