Athletes must uplift their race bib from race HQ at least 30 minutes prior to the start of their race. Their race bib must be worn on the front of their club singlet.

2023 Course

This year’s course remains the same as previous years. The 2km loop will run past Barton’s Bush and go across and around the Children’s soccer fields, before turning towards the Cricket Nets and then finish along the straight in beside the car park, back up to the start line at the Pavilion.

The 4km loop will now travel through Barton’s bush and weave between the senior and kids’ rugby fields, before travelling through a second bush track which emerges by the axeman’s grounds. Runners will cross the bridge over the stream and do a short dogleg before crossing through the stream by Cricket nets and then follow the straight back to the start line.

The course bush tracks are compacted gravel, while the remainder of the course is on grass. There are a few road crossings. Where we can, these will have carpet laid across the seal.

3km course = 1 x 1km loop plus 1 x 2km loop
6km course = 1 x 2km loop plus 1 x 4km loop
8km course = 2 x 4km loop
