About the event


The 21km Off Road Run (Half Marathon) continues to grow in number of competitors. Competing for cash prize money in each category this event will be electronically timed by Active Timing and is an ideal way to stretch out the legs. Ideal as an off-road training run along this beautiful coastline. ​ The 12km Recreational Run will suit all levels of fitness and is a wonderful way to get into running in a safe, off road race through this spectacular scenery. This event will also be timed. A 5 km run which does not cross the river is great for all ages and levels of fitness and will be timed. Mountain buggies and kids in backpacks/front packs are welcome on the 5km. 


A 12km walk is available for those who want to enjoy the scenery along this spectacular event. All fitness levels are catered for and the off-road track is well-maintained and enjoyable. This event is NOT suitable for prams or buggies. This event will be electronically timed. A 5km fun run/walk is the perfect outing for you, your friends and family - there are no river crossings and buggies can be taken. This event will be electronically timed. 


The 35km Classic MTB event has great cash prize money for the first 3 home in each category as well as $500 up for grabs for the fastest overall male and female rider. Electronic timing will be used. The 23km Recreational ride WILL also be timed but is more relaxed and a great event for those new to cycling or who just want to enjoy the ride and the challenge. The TEAM event has been amped up this year with the choice of the 35km track or the 23km track for teams up to 4 with the best 3 times counted towards the winning team. ​ The famous Longbeach Gate trophy is the prize for the 23km event and a new trophy has been introduced in 2016 for the 35km TEAM event. ​ The 12km Family ride is great way to get all of the family out and enjoying the atmosphere of this wonderful event in a safe, well organised environment. The Family Ride will be timed.
