For those wanting to get familiar with the Kuitpo courses before the big event, or those who just can’t wait until November to check out the courses! You have a choice of running the 10km, 16km or 26km courses for this social run. For those opting for 16km or 26km, this will give you a chance to run through the beautiful single tracks in Kyeema Conservation Park. Don’t worry there’s plenty of fun for those doing the 10km too.
Directions (the easy way): Click here
Don’t just type “Kuitpo Forest” into google maps or your gps app as it may take you to a completely different part of the park!
The meeting point is at the junction of Christmas Hill Rd and Brookman Rd, opposite Kuitpo Hall (a renovated stone building) and Tynan Rd. If you’re coming from the Adelaide-Meadows Rd it’s 8 kms from the junction with Brookman Rd (signposted Willunga). If you’re coming from the Adelaide-Mt Compass Rd, it’s 13 kms from the junction of Brookman Rd with that (signposted Meadows). Meet at 7:45 for an 8:00AM start.
Stop off in one of the towns beforehand to use the toilets as there are no toilets in Kuitpo (only trees and a rather smelly long drop at the neighbouring campground).
Coffee/brunch afterwards at the Meadows Bakery.
Galileo recommended: There will be no course marking and you’ll need to download the Galileo mapping app for your phone and the course you will be following.
If you are having trouble, arrive approximately 20 minutes early and Claire or Robyn will show you how to set it up. If you know how to load a GPX file into the app please do that before coming. The download links are above each of the maps below.
If you would prefer not to use galileo, a printed map is also available by clicking the print map (PDF) button next to the map below.
