Course setter notes: This is definitely a forest event with beautiful open running, many trails, and a lot of contour detail (however with contour detail comes climb). Gaiters and footwear with aggressive tread are recommended. This race is partially in the Kimberley Nature Park. Please respect the environment and other park users (this is a popular dog walking area). Please stay off the Golf course (out of bounds). Bears frequent this area.

Location: Kimberley. Drive up hill along Gerry Sorenson Way or follow bike/walking path from Kimberley Platzl for 1 km. The race is off the south side of Gerry Sorenson Way, just past the Baurnhaus Restaurant. Follow O signs. The finish assembly area will be in the Baurnhaus Restaurant parking lot. There will be a 300m walk from the finish assembly area to the start.
