COURSE MAP AND PROFILE
The SRF10 course skirts around the eastern and northern lower slopes of Mt Stromlo with the final few kilometres being a descent back down to the event hub and the finish line.
Made up of several undulating climbs and stretches of wide trail totalling 220m vertical gain, this course is suitable for runners of all levels and has no cut-off time. The SRF10 course provides some beautiful district views of Canberra and the Brindabella Ranges not usually appreciated at street level.
Runners can expect the course will be well marshalled and marked to ensure they can run carefree and enjoy the race without worry of navigation.
