Run the Lighthouse

24th Feb 2024

6km – 21km – 55km – 115km


Welcome to the second running of Run the Lighthouse Wilsons Prom.

It is very much aimed to be a family friendly weekend with plenty of options around Tidal River for the playful and adventurous.

The course however will challenge and amaze you, even take your breath away.

An unmarked course requiring a level of concentration and use of Map or App to navigate you through the awesome trails awaits and will no doubt fire up all those trail senses. The 55km and 115km courses will require a level of experience to ensure your readiness and ability to make it back safely.

Make sure you study the course maps and race information.

Please also ensure you have all the mandatory gear required to safely participate.  INCOMPLETE gear items results in NO RACE START.

Make yourself familiar with the event details and most importantly come for an adventure and great time.
