Overview

Start on the north side of the cattle grid, outside the Gantry Rangers Compound, Sellin Rd.

Proceed up Loveday’s Rd for 1.3km, turn left into Western Escarpment Drive to complete a 5.1k loop.

Remerge from the forest loop back onto Loveday’s Rd (7.4k), turn left and proceed to Checkpoint 1 on the corner of L Traverse track (13k). There is an Aid Station along the way (9.0k).

At L Traverse there will be Marshals conducting traffic contra flow. This steep descent of 1.5km, runners will need to keep to the left at all times as this road is open to normal traffic i.e. 4WD and trail bikes. Practise team running before event day so it becomes second nature to move left only on race day. Any reported infringement will lead to disqualification from the Event. Rangers will patrol this area to enforce Code of Conduct.

From L Traverse track you will turn left onto Neurum Creek Rd, continue for 600m before turning right through a gate, downhill over a causeway onto Centipede Rd for a kilometre. This is the Mt Mee State forest and timber harvesting is continuing in this area. Please note that no access is permitted prior to Event day for training in this area or the farm (km 15 to 19).

Left turn into an S bend, through a creek and up the hill to the farm. This is a tricky section with many different tracks that intersect and confuse even the most experienced trail runners. Clearly observe the trail markings in here.

Runners exit the forest onto lush green dairy paddocks. Please be quiet in this area so as not to spook the cows.

Cattle will be in the area but not in this paddock. Uphill for a kilometre to reach the farmhouse and then Checkpoint 2 on Hausmann Rd.

Checkpoint 2 to the Mt Mee Tennis court is on undulating bitumen road for 5km.

Run the full length of Hausmann Rd via left into Settlement Rd for 1.6km. At the T intersection with Robinson Rd do a U-turn. Relay runners change at the street sign.

Runners will return to the Gantry compound on the same route as they arrived except there is no loop on the Western Escarpment Drive. Runners will continue straight ahead to finish inside the Rangers compound under the Bunya trees.
