The course is a 3.0km loop where runners complete 5 laps going clockwise along the rear of Merewether Beach. Runners pass over timing mats each lap to keep record how many they have completed.
Who's it for?
This event will take between 1.5 hours and 3 hours to complete. If you are looking to do some longer endurance races in 2016 this is the perfect heart starter! 15km in soft sand is not easy, so we recommend for people who have trained sufficiently.
