Run #1: Tarn Shelf, Mt Field
Distance: 14.5 km
Date: Sunday 31st Jan 2016
Description: The Tarn Shelf on Mt Field is one of the finest alpine runs Tassie has on offer. Starting at Lake Dobson the run begins with a steep climb up to the Mt Mawson ski huts before heading out to the Rodways and Tarn shelf. The route along tarn shelf is a truly magical alpine wonderland with secret tarns and little waterfalls at every turn. Once past Lake Newdegate the trail heads down, dropping past Twilight tarn, to the Broad River valley and Lake Webster. From here it's a lovely run up the valley through the buttongrass and snowgums back to the finish at Lake Dove.
This is an exposed alpine course and as such is subject to exteme weather, runners will be required to carry the folowing compulsory warm gear: a thermal top, a space blanket and a roller bandage. A waterproof top and additional warm clothes/beanie/gloves are also suggested in case the weather gods do not smile on us!
