Course Details

The Course

The Princes Park loop will be run on the gravel trail with the exception of the lawn 3 cross over section. Runners must not cut corners or shorten the course. If a runner leaves the track for any purpose, they must re enter the track at the same place.

The 2.5km loop will be used, not the full outer 3.17km loop.

All Sunday events will be run in a anticlockwise direction.
