Heading for the hills again. Is the trail finally going country?
Rim Job and Rocket Socket at a check
Ah! This looks more like it!
Runners stretch their legs in a downhill section (centre)
Now for some jolly obstacles
Trees burnt in the forest fire and later blown over in a violent storm
Checking! Fair Cop decides to check down the steep slope
Yes! Thats the trail!
Now the blue flour leads the pack along a dry river bed
More dry river bed.
Mad Dog smiles (there's more to come)
Bee hives on the hillside.
Melissia (meaning a bee area) was once well known for it's hives and fragrant pine-tree honey.
Cutting through private land often requires crawling under fences
Fair Cop comes through backwards and almost loses his balance
Mad Dog ducks under
Rim Job backs through
Charging through another private plot in the Luxury Villa area bordering Kifissia
