Albert Town Tavern
From the Albert Town Tavern (300m above sea leavel).

You’ll be getting to the top of Roys Peak (1578m) around sunrise, dawn is long so there will be plenty of light from 5am. Down a wee bit then across and over Mt Alpha (1630m). Now you have a long downhill down the Spots Creek track to the Caradrona valley and your second aid station! Cross the road and the cardrona River then up the Little Criffle DOC Track to the top of the ridge at 1341m. Now you head south to Bob Lee hut (3rd aid station) and follow the Marathon course over Mt. Pisa (1963m 4th aid station) and down to the bottom of the hill and the Lake McKay woolshed and aid station number 5. below the Wanaka airport, from here you hop onto the Clutha River track all the way back to Albert Town Tavern.
