Route Description

Long Route: 25KM
The first five kilometres through olive groves on easy farm roads will enable the field to stretch out before the tough climb to the forest. A more gradual ascent follows in the shade of a pine forest before the course heads back down towards the finish line. Save your energy on the way back for a few short climbs before a final descent to the end through olive groves.

Medium Route: 14KM
This follows the same course as the long route until the forest. From here it is downhill all the way until a final sting in the tail near the end before a descent through olive groves to the finish.

Short Route: 5KM
This is an easy loop on farm roads through the olive groves. Spectators are welcome to picnic under the trees and watch the fun. There will be coffee for sale.

Please note:
There will be a water table on the 25KM & 14KM routes, As you approach the Forest. There will also be a water table at the combined Finish of the 25KM, 14KM & 5KM.
