  • Distance: 15.27km
  • 99.5% path, 0.5% road

The SRF15 follows the same track as the SRF10 course, taking in the eastern and northern lower slopes of Mt Stromlo before taking on “The Mother” aka the top of Mt Stromlo as a breath taking and selfie-worthy crescendo to this challenging course. The final few kilometres are a descent back down to the event hub and finish line.

SRF15 consists of multiple rises with one major climb towards the end for a total of 431m of vertical gain and is suitable for participants who may have completed 5-10km before and are looking to take on the next challenge.

Runners can expect the course will be well marked to ensure they can run carefree and enjoy the race without worry of navigation.
