The SRF5 course skirts around the eastern lower slopes of Mt Stromlo with the final couple of kilometres being a descent back down to the event hub and finish line.

Made up of a few undulating stretches of wide trail totalling 106m of vertical gain, this course is suitable for runners of all levels and has no cut-off time. The SRF5 course provides some beautiful district views of Canberra not usually appreciated at street level.

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