  • Turn left at the end of that unsealed section and run South and around the internal roadway of the Showgrounds complex.

  • Cross the marathon start mat and exit the rear gates of the Showgrounds, turning right and onto the gravel track which becomes grass for about 150m.

  • Turn right onto the sealed cycle path and run back along the side of the showgrounds to Evans Street.

  • Run down the steep path into the boat ramp area.

  • Follow the path over the first swing bridge and past the second swing bridge until you arrive at Bickerton Street.

  • Turn left at the stock bridge then almost immediately right into Apex Park.

  • Follow the sealed path through Apex Park as directed and signed.

  • Cross the main Ovens River bridge and turn right onto the riverside path and boardwalk.

  • Continue along this path, down a ramp into Sydney beach and cross the swing bridge.

  • Turn left off the swing-bridge and head back to the start area.

  • When you come up the short steep ramp at Evans Street, enter the Showgrounds gates and run along the internal road.

  • Turn onto the grass where directed and run over the finish line!
