First Run for 2016 in Hobart, Australia

I am attempting to do a fun run in a different city each month for 2016.

The first run was a 10km (six mile) run in Hobart, Tasmania which is part of the Cadbury Marathon. The Cadbury Chocolate Company are a key part of  the city’s economy with a presence there since 1922. They have sponsored this race for about a decade, I think.

The 10km run starts and finishes at the Cadbury factory and runs past the famous Museum of Old and New Art (MONA). The last section of the race includes a steep climb back up to the factory which always kills me!  My time was a respectable 1 hour 5 minutes 58 seconds coming 233rd out of 413 and sixth in my age grouping!
