Our Marathoners and Half Marathoner start together, initially running North then, turning left on to Pitts lane and out towards Putta Bucca Wetlands.
There’s a gentle slow climb with a couple of dips before heading past Lowe Wines and on a relatively flat road until you reach Back Springs Road.
From here get ready for another gentle rise before a little detour down School’s Lane. Turnaround is at the top of Lowes Peak Road and it’s the exact route back to Lawson Park – including School’s Lane detour again.
You may wonder why we didn’t extend the course instead of adding School’s Lane. Well, at the half way mark you will have reached the highest point. If we keep going, you’d be running 1km down a steep hill only to turn around and run up again. You can thank us later 🙂
This out and back course promised to be more social, we’ll have additional aid stations and lots of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers cheering you on!
