Notes on Course, starting on track you’ll do a short lap and then its out onto the bike path heading ‘south’ toward the city, you then turn, coming back the same way past the track (4.55 will leave and exit back onto the track to finish). 

10.55 & Half Marathon continue left over a wooden bridge and head through the Coburg Parklands. 

Going under another bluestone bridge at Newlands Road, you’ll head up a long climb to the highest point of the course.  You then go right over a steel bridge and follow the creek up to the turn around point (7k) mark. (and 17k on second loop).  Heading back you’ll do a lap of the track clockwise, 10.55 runners will be finishing now.  21.1 continue and do the same loop again. 

Distances Turn Points: 2.2k south section, 7k north section, track 11k, 12.9 south turnaround, final north section turn around 17.7K. 

Negative Split:

Half Marathon: the course is undulating and can be difficult to pace i.e. even KM splits.  So aim for a negative split i.e. run the first loop slower than the last loop.  For Half Marathon runners that means a check as you go through the 10.55 track and for 10.55k runners the 5K mark approx is at the highest point of the course through the parklands.

Running late for the start or injured

We can start you late and adjust your time.  If you get injured or are unable to finish, let us know at the track and we’ll adjust your time/distance for an unofficial result.
