This course starts at Gutteridge Gardens, Wynyard. The race starts near the soundshell and heads north-west on the path until this ends at Jenner St. The race then briefly follows Jenner St before following the track along the river. At ~1.5 km into the run the track end and runners will cross the road entry into the Cape Bridge Picnic Ground and follow Table Cape Rd on the right-hand side footpath, over the bridge. Immediately after the bridge, runners will cross the road and join the northern side of the river track. The river track continues for~2.5 km until it reaches the Bass Highway. The course then takes the footbridge across the Inglis river and then drops down onto the southern side of the river track for the ~2.5 km return to Table Cape Rd. Runners then cross Table Cape Rd and return to the Start/Finish along the same route as initially taken.
