We stopped to see the Big Tree, Podocarpis falcatus, Outeniqua Yellowwood, 800 - 1000 years old so they say, 36.6 meters tall, 33 m crown spread, 8.5 m circumference.

We also visited the runners convention and checked-in to get our race chip. Wow, there were so many venders and racers. When we drove by in the morning the line was out the door and down the block.
