COURSE DESCRIPTION

The 12km course heads from the calm shores of Lake Macquarie over towards the ocean and back again – the perfect way to enjoy some of the amazing trails in this area.

After exiting Raffertys Resort and winding through Murrays Beach, you will emerge back on the lake shore for some flat easy running. Turning right and up the fire trail, you will soon cross Murrays Beach Rd and follow the footpath under the highway and back into the bush. A mix of trails take you through the old quarry, your training will kick in and test if you can hold the pace on these technical trails.

Soon you will hit the Aid Station, with views across the Pacific Ocean, Caves Beach and beyond. Don’t linger here, fill up with water and head off knowing the climbing has been done! 12kms runners head along the old highway, a good hard surface for some fast running before crossing the existing highway via the footbridge. You can see the lake but you aren’t quite there yet! Skirt the edges of the Murrays Beach development then drop back into the bush on some narrow trails before popping out on the road for the last little bit back into the resort. The finish line, your finishers medal and the hospitality of Raffertys Resort awaits!
