Chaperoned by Whales

Bang on the peak of whale season, runners are left wondering who is watching who as scores of the annual migratory Southern Right Whales continually breach out the water, spy hopping and waving their fins at the passers-by, making the best and most enthusiastic cheerleaders.

It has become a must-do for those who have already tackled the more conventional runs out there. Bragging rights on this one are substantial!”
