Winner is the fastest to complete the most laps in time frame.
Start on the oval at the Tathra Country club where you run a loop of the oval before getting on the trail heading over the bmx track, past the poo ponds and then onto the fire road. You follow this until you see the sign saying dirt grom/school track (about 1.5km into the run).
You then follow the track until you get to track saying Lewys loop which you will be on for the next 2km – this is a windy and pretty track with steep dips and many switchbacks. You follow this until you see the arrow pointing to the fire road to the left (don’t take the trail straight which is evil tom! We don’t go up there!) you follow this narrow fire road up up up including the deadly heartbreak hill (even the best will have to hike here). You will reach an intersection at the top and head right to keep climbing until you reach the top of the where you will head left towards the more open area of forest remaining on the fire road- here you must run until you reach the water stop where you will loop the table before being sent down the single track – this winds back and forth with one more intersection where you will head straight along anchors away..you are nearly there- stick to the left when the path intersects (follow the arrow) and you wind the final time until you pop out at the fire trail near the poo ponds- head towards the road and follow the trail to the oval- here you decide whether that’s enough and head down the finish shoot or head through the check in to go out for your next lap!
