Road Race Race Terrain
100KM / 62Miles
1 Day - 150 Runners

Alternate Distances: 75KM/47M 50KM/31M 25KM/16M

DIFFICULTY Race Difficulty Beginner  

Entry From $65 AUD

The course is mapped out as a 12.5 km out and back ( 2 x laps for 25km, 4 x laps for 50km, 6 x laps for 75km and 8 x laps for 100km + 6km Kids Event) along the Australind Foreshore, taking in the scenic Cathedral drive through the paperbark walk (this was the old Bunbury road once apon a lifetime).

There will be an aid station at each end of the course (6.25km apart) along with a self-serve water station at the 3km mark, so there would be no need to carry water or supplies other than the mandatory gear.

There are amenities at the Australind end with decent parking, a service station and shops. Toilet blocks and playgrounds are located at the Start/Finish line and at the 2km mark (Fees Field). 

There are no significant road crossings, and the foot traffic will be separated from vehicle traffic, though you can park on the side of the track all along the length of the proposed course.

We are set for a Midnight start time for the 100km, 1am start for the 75km, 3 am start for the 50km, 6am start for the 25km, and a 9am start for the Kiddies 6km run to beat the heat!

This is going to be Very Flat and Very Fast, the perfect PB course.
