Vegetation: Partly park area – grass, flower beds, hedges, scattered trees. Partly urban area of historic city centre with no vegetation.
Runnability: Generally excellent. Grass in parks is cut.

Check out the online coverage here. It's been superb so far - loads of radio controls and the GPS tracking works well so be sure to track Salome tomorrow!

Hopefully we'll see Brad improve on last years brilliant result of 74th. Salome will be looking to improve on last years 116th place. Tim and Roark will be running their first JWOC sprint and with a clean run they have potential to do really well. Hopefully the vibe will be great and it'll be a memorable day.

Full speed, no mistakes! GO TEAM SA!!
