Starting off the Peters Valley track the course heads across country to the first hill climb and then around the paddocks and through the stock yards before joining the multisport course and heading over to cross the Clarence River, from here runners will head up the river valley following the old transmission tower access tracks up toward the Edwards gate. Here runners will re-cross the Clarence River and enter the Edwards Valley. They will follow the 4×4 track over into the head of Peter’s Valley where they will follow the stock track back to the finish at the St James Homestead.

While there will not be any compulsory gear to carry, it is very strongly recommended that runner’s carry some form of hydration of 2l capacity or more! There will be a mini aid station at Bull Gully (at approximately the 14.5km mark).
