In 2019, the course starts will start at the picnic area and follow the lake wall towards Rutherford. At the end of the wall (just over the bridge) runners will turn right, then travel along the gravel track along the western side of the lake. Where the track crosses the miniature railway, runners will turn left and head up a short hill towards Bush Kangaroo Nature Trail. The track then turns right onto the Nature Trail to Hillview Reserve, continuing along the tack, turn right and head downhill towards the lake and then back to start/finish area. Runners can choose to head back out for their next loop or can call into the ‘runners area’ to re-fuel, swap runners or rest.
- The course is flat, with some small rises.
- Animals are not allowed at Walka Water Works.
- Toilets are available 100 meters from the race start/finish area.
