Event description


10km 21.1km 42.2km 63.3km

Saturday September 30th


We are returning to the Hell Run for the 3rd year. So named becausee of the burn your legs will feel on the descent, be it the first, second or third time. A 21km loop course, set among tall coastal gums, with tracks lined with tree ferns in many parts. This event is sure to test the resilience of many runners if taking on more then one loop.

Of course one loop is tough but very acheiveable by the road half marathoner and we have the short fun run option of aproximately 10km for those wanting to enjoy the beautiful coastal trails and visit the waterfalls.

Designed to be a weekend trip away, many will arrive Friday night and enjoy a meal beofore race day on Saturday, and then post run a relaxing celebratory feed together with many staying on the Saturday evening to enjoy a relaxing stroll on the beach or recovery soak in the ocean for those who went to hell and back, the southern ocean will certainly put out the firey burn,

As always Volunteers are the key to successful events.

If you would like to help out on the day please let us know. We would love to have you helping as a volunteer.

We need aid station helpers and course sweepers,

there is no greater gift on the trails then helping another runner achieve their goals.

Registering to volunteer is easy with out new volunteer registration form, CLICK HERE
