12K Trail Course
Scenic 12K trail run course with mixed terrain, single track trails, and short but tough climbs
Course runs anti clockwise. Start at HQ and run for about 1km before turning left through a junction and in to some pine forest single track. You can run fast in here. Then it gets more technical through some native bush before you follow a creek out to a valley floor. Run up the valley for a couple of hundred meters before turning right up onto another climb towards the wind turbines. Take a left at the top of the climb and enjoy the views until you turn left and leave the road through a gate. Double back a little and until you dive down into the valley again. One last climb before you hit the service road, turning left to head back to Race HQ. All climbs are short but tough. As a clue all roads on the pic above are on ridgelines. Course is subject to track and weather conditions on the day.
