This year our event will start on the St Philip's College Oval.

Runners and walkers will continue along the path to their desired turn around.

The course will be marked clearly for a 2km and 4km loop to return to the college oval for a final lap to the finish line. 8km runners and walkers will complete this course twice.

If preferred entrants can stay within the college grounds by completing as many laps as they wish.
