The course runs along Riverside Road and is 2 loops for the half marathon and an out and back for the 10km with a different start / finish line outlined on the course map.

As per the advice we’ve all had from public health officials, if you do happen to show up and find the route you were hoping to throwdown on is quite busy the best thing to do is to choose to come back another time.Maintain a minimum distance of 2 meters between other runners if passing is necessary and show courtesy to other runners at all times while running your event.
