The Hinterland Traverse 80km course will be a significant test even for seasoned trail runners.
Taking in all five National Parks and State Forest Areas in Noosa the course heads west from Tewantin and takes runners out to Twin Hill Views Lookout some 23km from the start.
This is the first Cut Off point and needs to be completed under 4 hours if you want to complete the course in daylight.
Whilst walkers are always encouraged in trail events a large portion of this course is ‘runnable’ and participants will need to run, jog or hike briskly on flat or undulating sections to meet the cut off times.
From Twin Hills View Lookout runners traverse the hinterland toward Woondum National Park and then onto Checkpoint 3 in Cooran. From there it is onto Checkpoint 4 in Pomona – the designated Hinterland ‘Hub’ and second ‘Cut Off’ Point.
This will be a key place for support crew to cheer on their runners before they tackle the final 2 sections.
For the last sections of the course runners head eastward from Pomona through Yurol State Forest to Checkpoint 5 at Lake MacDonald which must be reached by all runners by the 7pm ‘cut off’ in order to continue. From there it is a flat and downhill 13km run to the Finish location at Read Park Tewantin.
