NEWSFLASH: COURSE CHANGES
Due to a Parks Victoria directive finalised today (5th Dec), we are no longer permitted to take runners from the main single track at Sailors Falls, into the finish line at Sailors Falls Estate Winery, via the rear paddock entrance to the property as per last year's event. It is an unfortunate development, however it is out of our control. This means that the course will now be re-routed to lead runners onto the road verge (which we were trying to avoid for obvious reasons).
Unfortunately this means that both the 11km and the 22km course distances will be unavoidably extended by 2-3km. We apologise however it is out of our control. We will post the exact distance extension and revised routing ASAP.
