Carcoar Cup Running Festival routes
MarathonThe Carcoar Cup begins in Carcoar, travelling along the Fell Timber Rd and out onto the Mandurama Neville road. Competitors then loop out around the back of Neville before storming down the main street to the cheers of waiting spectators as they cross the half way mark. Runners then make their way along the Blayney Shaw Neville Rd towards Blayney before turning left for the climb onto the Mt Macquarie saddle leading to the mostly gentle descent into Carcoar.
The half marathon begins in Neville and, following the second half of the Carcoar Cup route, makes it way back to Carcoar over the saddle of Mount Macquarie.
The Carcoar Cup Marathon course has been easily divided into four separate sections for the teams event. The sections vary slightly in distance and difficulty, so allowing for teams combining various strengths, older and younger, and disabled contestants.
Sections: 10kms, 12.5kms, 8.5kms and 11kms.
The race will start close to Drink Station #3 on the corner of the Mandurama/Neville Rd and Fell Timber Rd, and runners will run back into Carcoar after the Marathoners have gone through in the other direction.
