This week there are two events being conducted concurrently over the same course – the Greg & Di Woodhouse Marathon and the Acacia Concrete & Render Services Marathon Teams Race.
The marathon will start at 7.00am and the first team will start at 8.00am. Competitors need to wear a race bib, which will be provided, to identify which race they are in and what team. You do not need to wear your PCCCT race number. Bibs will need to be collected before the start of the race. It is an out and back course which is repeated twice. 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.
Post-race presentations will take place in the Ulverstone Cricket Club clubrooms. A soup luncheon will be provided. There are toilet and shower facilities available.
