The Courses

6km Course:

This is a great run for the beginner or intermediate runner or even for anyone that wants a leisurely Sunday morning stroll around beautiful Dunnstown.

The 6k race starts at 8.30am and bib collection is from 6.30am onwards. Get there early to avoid the queues and roads are closed from 8am.

The 6 km run/walk leaves the Dunnstown Recreation Reserve, and follows Old Melbourne Road to Torpy’s Road and into Britts and Howards Road, a final left back into Old Melbourne Road will see the course finishing back at the Dunnstown Recreation Reserve.

12.5km Course:

Do you want a real challenge? The 12.5k course up Mount Warrenheip is for you. A truly picturesque run with some stunning views. This run is sure to test your physical and mental endurance.

The 12.5k race starts at 8.15am and bib collection is from 6.30am onwards. Get there early to avoid the queues and roads are closed from 8am.

 The 12.5k event also leaves from the Dunnstown Recreation Reserve in Old Melbourne Road. This course follows the 6 km course but deviates at the end of Britt’s and Howard’s Road, to include the ascension of Mt Warrenheip where you will receive a “proof of ascension”. The course will then descend Mt Warrenheip back down Old Melbourne Road finishing at the Dunnstown Recreation Reserve.
