Cashmere – Sumner

Meet up with Marty today for a great run from Cashmere out to Sumner via the Crater Rim trails in the Port Hills. After the crazy 35+ degrees heat  yesterday I was stoked to see some cloud cover when I got up, as between the Kiwi and Godely Head there is no water. I did 1hr in the heat of the day with Tim on Saturday and didn’t feel the need to spend 3+hrs running in that kind heat today.

Jules meet up with us for the first hour before turning back, leaving Marty, George and I to it. The trails were pretty quite, guess the low cloud and being the time of year it kept people away.
Was a pretty mellow 3hr40min and 1300m vert, with some cool scenery and views-

One of my favorite bits of trail, between Taylors and Sumner

Just got a new camera, nice and light and small, so hopefully will get some cool photos out on the trails over summer

  1. Hi Grant, sounds like your recovery from Kepler has been going well. I am keen
    on catching up and getting getting out for some solid runs over the next few weeks.
