  • Did the 50 Km in 2018

    Convicts & Wenches is a beautiful and scenic run never straying far from the coast line. The scenery of isolated beaches, rugged headlands and breathtaking ocean views keep you engaged from start to finish. There is not a dull moment and it is difficult to say with certainty which part of the course is my favourite. I have ran this race for the past 7 years (5x 50km and 2x 25km) and I keep coming back for more.
  • Did the 12 Km in 2018

    My fellow wenches & I had the best day out!! We are still talking about how its one of our favourite events!! Beautiful scenery, well organised, great photography! & a fantastic atmosphere, already registered for next year with an idea to top our costumes this year
