The map is the most northerly section of Plenty Gorge Park, where the river is no longer in a gorge.  The open land is between the new housing development and Plenty River.  There are signs of past mining and farming on the map.

Access to the assembly is via Wilton Vale Road (Melway 184 A4).  Wilton Vale was an old farm with a few remains left.

Carome Homestead (also known as Two Beans and a Farm) is on the map and is worth a visit.  Nowadays it has a good café/restaurant but its history dates back to 1861, and there was a mill nearby.  http://twobeansandafarm.com.au/

The longer courses will get to the large geological formation opposite Carome – it would be worth paying it a visit and climbing to the top.  Beware of the steep cliffs on one side.

Only Course 1 participants will get wet feet crossing the river.

There is no pre-entry; just pay and register on the day. You can choose any of four courses – Long Hard, Short Hard, Moderate, or Easy, varying in distance from approx 3 - 8 km.  Start any time between 10am and 12 noon.  Courses close at 1pm.

Sportident electronic timing will be used – if you have your own SI stick, you must bring it to use it at Registration via a touch screen.  If you don’t have a stick, one will be provided.

Coaching, equipment loan and refreshments are all included in your entry fee of $10 (adults) and $5 (juniors).
