Training 

Training on the course

Training on course is available year around EXCEPT for the section from Leith Valley up Mt Cargill. This section crosses private farmland. We do not have permission to run on private farmland and even during the race this year, we have had to bypass the private farmland up to Mt Cargill due to the calving season.  Please do not run on private farmland.
