View from the (almost) top of the first part of the Marathon - enjoy amazing views! (7km, 11km and 22km course)

22km entrants will follow an old bulldozer track down through open ground and around the bush edge....

.....from here it meanders again along a forestry road toward Opito hill, crossing Blackjack Road (15km mark) then continuing on a clay, coastal, farm track to the airstrip - again fantastic views - before a steep descent down to Sarah’s Gully Beach.

You can buy a commemorative t‐shirt of the event on race day. Bring cash as there are no EFTPOS facilities at the event venue.

If you don’t feel up to dragging yourself around the course but want to join in the fun then email us - there is plenty to do, it could be taking off bibs in the cage, keeping the venue tidy, taking photos... the list goes on.
