The race begins at Bridgewater lakes ( we will bus you to the start line from town) and follows the Great South West Walk back to Portland via the Blowholes, Bridgewater Bay, Cape Nelson and Point Danger. It will finish on the foreshore of Portland Bay as part of the annual Upwelling Festival. Ther is spectacular ocean views for the majority of the run, its almost all single track with a few small beach sections to spice things up.
