- 20km km runners – meet at Norton Summit at 6:15 a.m in order to car pool to Athelstone for a 7:00 a.m start.
- 9 km runners – meet at Athelstone for a 7:00 a.m. start.
Guru app (previously known as “Galileo”) strongly recommended: We strongly recommend you download the Guru mapping app for your phone, and load the GPX map into it. The “download gpx” link is just above the map on this page.
- Download Guru (previously known as Galileo) for iPhone
- Download Guru (previously known as Galileo) for android
You will need to download the full version (roughly $2) rather than the free version.
If you are having trouble, arrive approximately 20 minutes early and ask around for help on how to set it up. If you know how to load a GPX file into Guru please do that before coming.
For iPhone users – the “download gpx” link wont work if you click it from within facebook. You need to open the safari app on your phone, visit trailrunningsa.com, and go from there.
If you would prefer not to use Guru, a printed map is also available by clicking the print map (PDF) button next to the map below.
- Click here for directions in google maps to the Athelstone Start area.
- Click here for directions in google maps to the Norton Summit 20km finish area. Please do not park in the Scenic hotel as this is reserved for paying customers. We are relying on people to car pool so please head to Norton Summit and co-ordinate rides down to Athelstone from there. Please see the map below for instructions on parking at Norton Summit to minimise congestion and the impact on other people in the area on Sunday morning.
