Route Description:
Long Route Profile
Route will be marked with red and white tape on bamboo sticks. A handful of marshals will be out on the course at key points so keep an eye out and listen for their guidance.

Both courses start and finish at the registration point at the bottom carpark.

Both travel 1km uphill to the upper carpark.
The longer route swings left to complete a 4km clockwise route back to the upper carpark.
Both routes now head downhill towards the lower carpark and complete a 1km anti-clockwise loop back to the upper carpark.
Both routes finally head back down the initial 1km section to finish at the bottom carpark.

The longer course is roughly half fire and half single track.

Volunteers (Running)

Check with race director if they have a need for people volunteering and running. Race directors need a minimum number of people available throughout the race to make the race work so non-running volunteers are preferable. While it can be helpful, volunteering in a volunteer and race capacity does not count towards qualifying for end of year prize
