10km Trail Run

Distance:10.57 km
Avg Pace:9:23 min/km
Elevation Gain:723 m

Solid 10k of which about 3.5k was on road (beginning and end). Some big hills to climb which had the HR right up. Managed to loop a few trails together to create a decent run. First time using the course feature on the Garmin which was handy.

About 100m from the highest point it started snowing lightly which was very nice. By the time I got home it was snowing pretty heavily so there is a bit more snow on the ground again. Also went by some kind of secure installation which I think might be a military base, razor wire everywhere and CCTV. Funny, there was razor wire across one part of the trail which is quite obviously ignored as there was multiple tracks around it.

Fortification and bunker on the ridge line.

Not sure what's behind the fence, but it is well protected.
It's a double layer of fencing with razor wire.

And a video of some of the snow at Gaksabong (540m):
