Good Friday Tely 10 Practice

Good Friday comes early this year ... March 29 just 2 weeks from tomorrow! And as usual there will be many, many runners taking to the Tely 10 route for a little practice. Runners will converge on McNamara Drive in Paradise for the traditional 10-mile trek to Bannerman Park and while many individuals and groups have their own starting times, the largest pack hits the start line at 9am.

This tradition started several years ago when Phil Gushue, Paul Dawe and a few others chose the day to test their early-season mettle, and capped off the run with fish and chips! Year after year more and more people joined in and the past few years have seen hundreds taking part.

Note this is NOT an official, organized, supported or sanctioned event in any way, so if you do partake stay on the sidewalks and be careful out there! Everyone runs at their own risk and don't expect any marshals, traffic control or assistance of any kind. Find a few friends and carpool from the finish to the start.
