NOTE: The Teams Marathon will start at 7am, not 8am as indicated in the preview and on the entries page. Please ensure you are at the start line for your handicapped start line, allowing yourself time to collect team bibs.

This week there are two events being conducted concurrently over the same course – the “Greg & Di Woodhouse” Marathon and the “Terry Watson Memorial” Marathon Teams’ Race.

Both events will start at 7am. Competitors need to wear a race bib, which will be provided, to identify which race they are in and what team.

It is a two lap out and back course. The races start at the Ulverstone Cricket Club in River Road, West Ulverstone. The course heads east along River Road to the Ulverstone Bridge, under and across the bridge, down past the wharf precinct to Otto’s Grotto and onto Fairway Park walking track to Buttons Creek and along Beach Road to the start of the Ulverstone/Turners Beach coastal pathway where there will be a drink station. Runners follow the pathway to Turners Beach and then along The Esplanade to the turn which is beside the Forth River where there will be another drink station. This is where the second and fourth teams’ runners will commence their runs. Runners follow the exact same course back to the Ulverstone Cricket Club. This will be the halfway point for the marathon competitors and where the third leg teams’ runners will commence.

Runners, both individual and teams’ runners, are asked to provide their own drinks in clearly marked containers – either their name or race number. These can be left at the start/finish and will be transported to the drink stations.

Runners are also reminded that they should not be paced either by another runner not in the race or someone on a bike or other device. In the event of any pacing the runner or teams risk disqualification.
