Note that the course may change if weather or forest harvesting requires it.
At WOODFORD POOL please ensure you shower to wash off the trail dirt/mud before entering the pool.
Directions for vehicles: ( One per team only )
On leaving the car park at the pool zero your trip meter. Go to the end of Peterson Rd and turn left into Langer St followed by left turns into Nicklaus and George Streets. Turn right off George St into Golf Course Rd. After about 2.5km on the trip meter the bitumen ends and a gravel road goes to the right. This is Beerburrum-Woodford Rd (B-W Rd).
At about 6.1km on the trip meter there is a mango tree on the right and a white post with a ‘W’ on it. The forestry road going to the left here leads to Checkpoint 1. Relay/crew vehicles will follow this forestry road if weather conditions permit to Checkpoint 1 for changeover. If conditions do not allow access then the changeover Relay Change1 will be closer to B-W Rd.
Continue along B-W Rd and at about 10.8km on the trip metre a gravel road goes to the left (Woodford – Glasshouse Rd) while B-W Rd becomes bitumen and goes straight ahead. Checkpoint 2 is located on a forestry road a few hundred metres to the left along W-G Rd the Relay Change2 is there. Again please park sensibly before the checkpoint because later in the day this area could be busy. It is a favourite area for trail bikes.
Backtrack to the intersection with B-W Rd and turn left down the bitumen road. Keep following W-G Rd and at about 12.6 km on the trip meter take the first forestry track on the left. Checkpoint 3 is set back from the road 400m. Relay/crew vehicles will follow this forestry road if weather conditions permit to Checkpoint 3 for changeover. If conditions do not allow access then the changeover Relay Change 3will be closer to B-W Rd.
Continue along B-W Rd. for a further 3.5km and at about 16 km on the trip meter you arrive at Checkpoint 4 and Relay Change 4 (the turnaround point) and park in the forestry road on the right rather than on the sides of B-W Rd. This Site is the forestry road before the intersection of Old Gympie Rd.
Checkpoint 5 will be provided on the return trip at 49.5km but will not be a Relay Change.
Please drive slowly on the gravel roads and always park sensibly so as not to block roads which are at present in the best condition I have seen over the past few years. There will be other users out on these gazetted roads particularly later in the day.
Each relay team should have a support vehicle (one only) and the expectation is that the support vehicle will supply the runner with any fluid or food needs, Supplies at the checkpoints are mainly meant for the hares who are doing the run without a support vehicle. Relay persons should not hover around the checkpoint and hinder the volunteers looking after those checkpoints. We have a limited number of volunteers at these checkpoints.
Once all of the Hares have passed through the checkpoints on their way back the checkpoint may be closed down. Anticipated latest Shut Down times are:
Chpt 4 – 7.30am; Chpt 3 – 8.30am; Chpt 2 – 9.30am; Chpt 1 – 10.30am.and Chpt 5 – 11am.
An event official will follow the last runners from 4 where possible to clear the markings on the course.
