What in the world happens when you combine one of the world's most beautiful places with a race that will challenge your mind and body? ... Magic happens. Exhilaration. Then peace (or you may just go nuts!)

Tasmania's Gone Nuts 101 Adventure Run on Saturday, 2 March 2019 commences on one of Tasmania's most recognized and visited icons, The Nut, at Stanley, in Tasmania's North West corner.

The race hugs coastline, climbs through Rocky Cape National Park and traverses rugged coastal bush and calming temperate rainforest, finishing in Gutteridge Gardens, Wynyard, after a breathtaking trip around another volcanic monolith, Table Cape.

Both the 101km, 50km races have individual and team relay entries and the exclusive last 25km leg is for individuals only. So that everyone can enjoy Gone Nuts, there are generous cut off times for all legs - even a brisk walk will get you over the line in time!

Travel
As Australia's island state, access to Tasmania is by air and sea only.

BY AIR
Tasmania has 4 commercial airports – Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie/Wynyard.
Hobart and Launceston airports have direct flights to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, with Qantas, Virgin Australia, and Jetstar.

Alternatively many visitors travel to Tasmania from Melbourne by sea on the Spirits of Tasmania passenger vessels. Departing from Melbourne and arriving in Devonport about 9 hours later, travelling by sea allows you to bring your own car and make the most of Tasmania's touring potential.

Spectators
Everyone loves to be supported, cheered and acknowledged. Spectating is a great way to make the job of competitors that little bit easier knowing that you are there cheering them on. Below is a list of the main transition areas where you can support the athletes ( not the only places that you can spectate so have a look at the race map and combine some spectating with a little time in this special part of the world). Just remember, be safe and be aware to other people - don't let the excitement of the occasion make you forget about others around you.
