Calling all hill runners! Feel like a crazy challenge that’s all up hill? A chance to test stamina and guts? A chance to scream up the steepest hill in Launceston Tasmania? I know you do!!!
Introducing the Balfour Burn!
Balfour Street in Launceston is steep. I shall not mention any names but a certain young lady was taken there many moons past in a small orange beetle (volkswagon) and told most sincerely that this is where you will be brought for your hill start on your Learner driver test. Humph – very funny now, but not at the time!
Please have a read of the Balfour Burn web site – it sounds like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Some really caring people have put a lot of creative and fun energy into the whole concept of this event. It will raise money for St Giles. St Giles is a special organisation in Northern Tasmania, it provide services and support to children with disabilities and their families.
This run is worth a trip to Launceston just to participate in the crazy fun that will be the inaugural Balfour Burn
Happy running 🙂
PS You couldn’t find a more amazing place to come for a Runcation AND did you know… the modern Point to Pinnacle is turning 20 years old next year, I know you are tempted! I’ve updated the Tasmanian Running Event page on the blog, please check it out 🙂
