RUN THE COURSE is a completely unique event, a fun run being held on a golf course
We start on the first tee and from there proceed to run/walk down the fairways following the order of the course layout and finishing on the 18th hole. The course is undulating for the first 9 holes and flat for the bottom 9. In total, we are looking at:
21.1 km & 3 laps of the course for the Half Marathon,
7.5 km for the 18 Hole Course,
3.5 km for the 9 Hole Course.
The golf course is in a beautiful bush land setting surrounded by native flora and fauna, with an abundance of wildlife to view as you run/walk along. The event will have a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere, where anyone can participate, from the seasoned athlete to first time walkers/runners.
