Please ensure you are at the start line for your posted handicap time. Race start is at 9:30am.

Welcome to new members Paul Homan and Lukas Pilkington, and new nominated time members.

The course: The race starts near the soundshell and heads north-west on the path beside the river.

After ~1.5km you will come to Table Cape Road where it crosses the river. Cross the road to the left-hand side and then cross the bridge. Immediately over the bridge, turn left and follow the path for ~2.5km until you reach the Bass Highway.

Here, again cross over the river and run back to Table Cape Road along the southern side of the river. Recross the road and then retrace your steps back to the finish.

Please be careful crossing the road on each of the two occasions that we do.

Care needed: the path along the sides of the river is windy and narrow in parts. There are also rock/root trip hazards and some stairs. Please be careful. You want to get back safely to your awaiting sausage or veggie burger.

Please stay after the run to remember Ron and celebrate a successful season.

Race 8 – Coles Beach, Devonport 7km Handicaps and Race Briefing

If you are not feeling well, especially if you have cold/flu systems, on Sunday morning please don’t come to the run.

The meeting place is at Coles Beach, Devonport.

Please ensure you are at the start line for your posted handicap time. Race start is at 9:30am.

Welcome to new runners and new nominated time members.

The course: The race start will be on the grassed area near the BBQ to the west of the Coles Beach carpark. Head west and follow the shoreline to the Don River where the path turns left and follows up the river. It takes you under the train bridge and up to the sealed cycle/walk path at the bottom of the Don College oval.

Turn right taking the path until you cross the Don River Railway crossing then immediately turn right off the sealed path onto the sawdust track. Do NOT continue on the sealed path.

NOTE: a fresh, deep layer of sawdust has recently been spread on the first part of the track. It is a bit uneven so care is needed (though any landing would be very soft).

Stay on the sawdust track; don’t take any tracks off to the right or left. It will bring you to a left turn when almost to the pool. Keep on the track until you again reach the cycle/walk path.

Turn right and head up to the Aquatic Centre car park. Run on the path above the carpark, across the road entrance to the carpark (care needed!) and continue down the hill to the first switchback which will be the turn.

Then repeat your steps back to the finish.

We should be right with the Don River Railway train. The first run doesn’t leave until 10:00pm. However, please don’t take any risks if you and it do happen to get to the crossing together. It is very short and will cross quickly.

Please keep COVIDSafe distance between you and other runners, especially if you are following someone else. Please read our COVIDSafe plan if you haven’t done so. Thank you very much to our wonderful season sponsors which are all listed on our website.

Race 6 – Turners Beach 7km Handicaps and Race Briefing

If you are not feeling well, especially if you have cold/flu systems, on Sunday morning please don’t come to the run.

The meeting place is at the Berry Patch at Turners Beach which will be available for coffees/ice-creams and/or brunch after the race.

Please ensure you are at the start line for your posted handicap time. Race start is at 9:30am.

Welcome to new runners: and new nominated time members.

The course: Starting at the Berry Patch, run towards the river, almost to the train bridge, where you cross the railway line (care needed!) and enter the bush, following the path back to the left around the marshy area.

Please note: there are some muddy puddles in this section so consider wearing old footwear if you want to plough through them rather than go around. Please take care.

When you arrive at Lukin Street, turn right and then right again, into the bush. DON’T run down the grassy lane.

Follow the witch’s hats and path out onto the end of the Esplanade. Run on the river/beach side of the Esplanade eventually turning left past where the old service station used to be. Continue to Lethborg Avenue and turn right. The turn is about 200 metres along. Return exactly the same way as you ran out, again staying on the beach/river side of the Esplanade (so we don’t have to worry about the streets).

It will be well marked with witch’s hats and fingers.

Be careful of cars in the vicinity of La Mar Café.

Rod and Judith Priestly will be providing the voucher for the winner while the Berry Patch is giving us some vouchers for the random draw prizes. These will be presented following the race.

Race 5 – Burnie Romaine Park Reserve 6km Handicaps and Race Briefing

This course consists of four laps (1 large and 3 small) around the Romaine park area.  This should provide great viewing options for spectators allowing them to follow the race as it unfolds.

The race starts on the eastern side of the Romaine Creek dam opposite the carpark off Amanda Crescent.  For lap 1, runners then cross the dam wall and run around the dam in an anticlockwise direction following the main track for 600m.  At this point runners reach a T intersection and the lap turns right up the hill, following the main track for another 500m before reaching the turn around point and returning via the dirt track that branches off the main track.  The lap continues to follow the dirt track heading north down the park fence line for 1000 m, past the dam to another turn around point which re-joins the main track and heads back towards the start area.  Lap 2 begins once runners reach the dam wall.  Lap 2 continues along the same track as lap 1 until the T intersection.  At this point runners continue straight and follow the main track for 600m back to the start area.  Laps 3 and 4 are repeats of lap 2.  After completing lap 4 runners will cross the dam wall a final time and the finish chute is on the left of the track near the children’s playground and carpark.

Notes:

  1. Parking is limited in the Romaine carpark.  Therefore, all competitors that are able, are requested to park in Blackwood Parade or Kingsley Avenue.  This is to ensure access to the park area for other users and club members who are travelling with people who have mobility issues and/or small children.
  2. When warming up and moving towards the start area, people are reminded that runners may be starting their race.  As the main track narrows near the dam wall, please avoid interfering with runners already on course.  If possible, please approach the start area by walking in an anticlockwise direction around the dam.
  3. Given the rain forecast for this weekend, parts of the course are likely to be damp and muddy underfoot.  However, there will not be any heavy mud sections.  Please choose your footwear accordingly.
