Follows the shoreline from the Cape St Francis Resort to Mostertshoek past the Seal Point Lighthouse. From the last house in Mostertshoek turn up the road (away from the shoreline) and into the Eskom Nature Reserve, where the 62km and 42km runners will continue through the coastal thicket and forest to Dune Ridge Country House.
At Duneridge Country House the 62km runners continue through the Eskom Nature Reserve to Thysbaai and Oyster Bay. The Eskom sliding gate, at around 30km, will serve as a cut off point (time to be decided by the Race Director on race day, taking weather conditions into account). They then will tackle the 16km dunes of the Sand River back to Dune Ridge Country House, and down to the Mostertshoek Road.
However, at Duneridge Country House the 42km runners will continue on the dirt road before they turn into the Sand River for a short 6km of dunes. They will then run pass the Duneridge waterpoint again, before they turn back to the Mostershoek Road, and meet the 23km runners at the sliding gate on the R330 into St Francis Field.
All distances will have to check in to the Dirk Ellis Waterpoint at Port St Francis before they can continue via Shark Point back to the Resort.520 meters of elevation gain.
