21km Course     10am

MAP-21km

The 21km course will start at the Run Forrest Race Village situated on the banks of the Barwon River (access from Hennigan Crescent Forrest – trail walk – no parking at Village).

The trail run will follow the Barwon River along the famous Red Carpet to Lake Elizabeth. The Red Carpet is a favourite amongst mountain bikers for its dynamic technical sections, fern covered single track and fast downhill corners.

Now we get a chance to run it…..

Run Forrest also gives trail runners access to the beautiful fern banks surrounding the majestic Lake Elizabeth.

The course is tough with tight, off cambered turns, fast down hills and undulating with plenty of flow.

The course is a circuit ending at the race village on the banks of the Barwon River.


10km Course     10.30am
