Course Details

The course is over very fast and undulating compact earth. The small and medium sized loops have their first 200m, A – B – C rising slightly. The next 750m C – D – E – F – G  is fast running as the course drops almost 20m in height over the 750m. Great underfoot terrain as the athletes pass through a lovely technical part of the course, F – G. This is a young palm tree reforestation area. From G you have what will prove to be the toughest part of the course with one short steep hill and drop before immediately rising again for well over 100m to the top end of the course. This hilly section of the course runs along side a cliff edge with stunning views into the mountains. The course turns back for the start again at H with a nice recovery 150m before heading into the next lap or last 200m of the race to the finish M
