Race 1 2014, Australia. Australia usually means great weather (except last year where it monsooned), friendly people, open air restaurants, a gentle circuit and the first Group Run of 2014!

Those of you who with us last year in Australia may remember that we tried to stage the first Group Run of the season, it never rains in Melbourne right? More rain then had ever been seen followed, and sadly the Group Run had to be cancelled. Well this is RunThatTrack, so where we fall we pick ourselves back up and try again, so get ready Albert Park, we're back.

It's the first race, so long nights, jetlag, restaurants along the waterfront and overzealous marshals are the norm and provide a variety of excuses for those whose lap times seem to have ummm "dropped off" since the end of last season. Nevertheless, think of a gentle lap as a means to get back into the swing of things, restart the inter team rivalry burn a few calories around the circuit in the setting sun before heading off for dinner and a few well deserved beers.

If you're new to Australia or to RunThatTrack, you might want to check out the King's Track Guide for all the helpful tips on getting around the circuit and city.
