Route description
Route description

This unique 6 hour event is left in the hands of the racer. The 3.7-mile off-road loop means your race can be just over 5k or even over 50k and anywhere in between. You decide how many laps you're going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit.

If you're looking to cover a marathon distance, you'll need to complete 7 and a bit laps (29.6 miles) and a half marathon will be 3 big laps, and some mini laps (14.8 miles).

The course isn't flat but there aren't steep inclines. Each lap has around 160ft of elevation, making the marathon distance 1280ft of elevation.

The course is on the track pathways on "the other side" at Hicks Lodge. Given the nature of the track, there likely won't be any muddy sections, so runners can focus on the race and whiz around the course.
