It’s back again! The 25km is the perfect distance for pushing a bit further than a half marathon, or attacking your first time at walking a longer distance.

We had over 450 people tackle the 25km course in March 2015 and we can’t wait to send off hundreds more on the epic 25 km course in 2016!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

It’s a fast downhill start along Anzac Parade, taking in the views of Parliament House as you head towards Lake Burley Griffin. A smooth bike path winds its way around central basin, across Commonwealth Ave bridge, via Lennox Gardens and up to Parliament House.
Next up is a douche grade climb up Melbourne Ave as you head for the trails at Red Hill!

It’s time to hit the dirt and the hills as you climb up some single track and stairs, past the Dr Who Tardis and top out at Red Hill Drive.

CBR100_2 (3)

Taking in the views at the first water station, 25km participants veer right along a steep downhill and then onto single track along the edge of the Federal Golf Club.

After exiting Red Hill Reserve you work towards the Governor General’s Residence via West Basin bike path. Scooting over the top of Scrivener Dam, you will hit Checkpoint 1. CBR100_2 (8)

Soon after this, the 25km course splits right towards Black Mountain via bike path and arrives at the South West corner of Black Mountain.

25km’ers turn right for a sharp climb up the Lakeview fire trail (known as push-bike hill because you need to dismount and push your bike up here!) and sneaking off to the right along some adventurous goat trail to work their way back to the lake.

Joining on to the bike path, the 25km Challengers follow a fast and flat track through the Australian National University and around the lake towards the Captain Cook Fountain, up ANZAC Parade and over the finish line.

You may be asked by event crew to show any of your mandatory gear before the start of the event or during the event at checkpoints. If you do not satisfy the requirements, you will not be able to continue to compete until you have everything.

Please make sure you are well prepared, help others wherever you can and always use common sense!

Why do I need all this gear? It all actually has a purpose, see it all explained in our FAQs.
