13km Run/Walk

Course Map and Profile

Starting on private land at Bethells (next to the Bethells Beach reserve) and heading up towards Razorback Ridge via 4 wheel drive track. At the top of the ridge, turn right and proceed in the direction of the sea. At the 1st fork in the 4 wheel drive track turn right and head down for approx 1km. From here, you will have a solid climb while being rewarded with breath-taking views.

Once you've ticked off a few tough km's, you'll arrive on Razorback Ridge. (Remember it's all private land once leaving the beach so strictly no training on this part of the course please). You will head along Razorback ridge with stunning 360 degree views of the coast line and ranges.

You will start your descend down the 4 wheel drive track you came up. The road will fork and you will continue down the 4 wheel drive track which snakes its way to run parallel with the sand dunes (the ones at the North West end of Lake Wainamu) and to the event base.

Total ascent over the 13km course - 649m (vertical metres climbed).
