    The Two Bays Trail Run 28km version runs from Dromarna on Port Philip Bay south to Cape Shank on the tip of Westernport Bay. This id the version I ran. There is a limit of 1000 runners on this run. It starts with a 290metre elevation gain over three kilometres up the side of Arthurs seat then follows the two Bays walking trail to Cape Shank over undulating trails.. The trails start with a wide walking track with steps up Arthur’s seat which descends to a section of roads then onto a gracel road that rises steadily to the 10.3 kilometre mark where Browns road is crossed. The course then becomes single file track that winds its way through Greens Bush . After crossing the Flinders Road the course hits the coast for the final 6 or so kilometres with great vies of Bush Rangers Bayt and Bass Strait. The sting in the tail comes in the last Kilometre with a set of very uneven stairs to climb before rounding a corner into a car park and running up to the finish to be greeted by welcoming crowds.
    The course is difficult with uneven steps, tree roots and steep descents to negotiate. However once into Greens bush the track became firm sand and was very comfortable to run on. We were warned of heat and snakes. However the weather was mild after a wet few days and the snakes were not active. I did see a Kangaroo jump across my path 2 metres ahead of me.
    As a 64 year old with very poor eyesight I enjoyed conquering the 28 km course and finishing strongly, not being overtaken in the last 6 kilometres with a time of 3 h 27min. The weather was perfect for the run If all goes well I will be back next year Maybe to do the 56 km version…..maybe.
