A great run can be done along Ross River, particularly on the southern side which provides shade for several kilometres. Try running from the Riverside Tavern downstream towards Fairfield Waters. The run is along a bike/walk track where the river can be seen only metres from the track, which is very picturesque. The track is gently undulating for the first 4 kilometres, which then breaks out of the shade and up onto a fairly flat track for the next 4.5 kilometres to the Murray Basketball Stadium. You can make the run as short or as long as you want. Try a run on Sunday morning, where you can return to the Tavern for breakfast and reload on carbohydrates. April to September is the perfect time to run, it gets a little hot after that. Hope you enjoy the experience.
