Do you have what it takes to beat the train?
Due to the construction of the Lakeside Visitor Centre in Emerald Lake Park, and the subsequent Finish Line precinct being a work site, the traditional 13.5km course will not be offered in 2020.
About The Race
The race route between Emerald and Gembrook is primarily along trails, which are very narrow in parts. Single file trail running will be required, so please be mindful of other runners and kept left at all times.
In addition, runners will be required to stop at all rail crossings and certain road crossings, specifically between Cockatoo and Gembrook, as instructed by race officials.
The safety of our runners is paramount and we thank you for your support on race day.
