RUN TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
The 2020 Race Brief PDF will be available at least one week before the event. It will be available here to download and will be emailed to all competitors.
Run the lighthouse is pure adventure!! The course is self-supporting and is UNMARKED so you must print out and carry the downloadable map and make sure it is loaded onto your phone (see the maps on the main Lighthouse page). Carry a spare battery for your phone.
The course requires focus at decision points and you should regularly refer to your map.
21km and 5km is very simple to navigate but there are still decision making points that require focus (eg. the exit from Norman Beach near the start-finish).
For the 5km, keep an eye out for the diversion to the lookout at about 2.8km.
For the 21km, watch out for the exit off Oberon Beach toward Telegraph Track.
