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). This race is 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. 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.
