Course Information

The course will start on the track in the Maitland Regional Athletics Track off the eastern end of High St. This world class facility will become the start, finish and lap area for each 4km loop. Runners will start on the track and run approx. 300m to a gate on the western end of the facility. They will then follow the path past the Sports Field and run across James St into Odd St. Traffic controllers will be in place. They will then cross Hunter St onto the path and shoulder of Hunter St and run towards the river bank. They will then climb onto the riverbank and then run north under the Belmore Bridge and towards the park in Sempil St just north of the Court House. They will then return the same way and complete the lap on the last 100m of the track. The course is very well marked. The Half Marathon will this year run 1.1km on the track and then start the loop to complete 5 laps of the above course.
