Route information
  • Terrain: Gravel, natural paths.
The 6-hour looped course is 4.98k in length (3.1 miles) will take you along the compacted gravel paths with a smattering of natural paths. You will have a 6 hour limit for this event so you must complete your final lap before the end of the 6 hours. This course is mainly flat with the odd small climb so it is perfect for you to secure a PB or push yourself to the limit by running for the whole 6 hours.
This course will still be open to the public, you will not have right of way so you will have to be considerate of other users. Make sure to be alert when running around the white water rapid areas as this is expected to be busy.
