Course Description

The course starts at the end of Garryowen Drive on Black Mountain Peninsula. Runners will proceed along Garryowen Drive and turn left onto the shared path just before Lady Denman Drive. Runners then proceed along the shared path, (keeping to the left hand side) around West Basin and over Scrivener dam, where a few hundred metres after the dam the 10k course turns around. The Half Course continues along the shared paths past the ovals at Curtin, under McCulloch Street and adjacent to Yarra Glen. The shared path then crosses under Melrose Drive and passes the pitch n putt in Woden. Shortly after runners turn and retrace their steps to Black Mountain Peninsula. Here they turn right onto the bike path near the rowing sheds and enter John Cardiff Close for the finish.

Bottled water will be provided half way and at the finish. Qualified first aiders will be on hand.
