Notes:

Birds eye view: Imagery copyright CNS/Airbus & Landsat/Copernicus and courtesy of Google Earth.

Directional way points: ~100m before the way point, your watch will alert and tell you which directional to turn. 0-20m from the way point the watch will alert and tell you what the _next_ turn will be. On Suunto Ambit, the watch will use text (eg, it will display "Left"). On Suunto Spartan and 9, Suunto have chosen to only display the way point's type as an icon - and not the way point's name/text. To compensate for this, a "Lake" icon is used to indicate a left-turn and a "Restaurant" icon is used to indicate a right-turn.

Distances and ascent: Every watch will measure these differently! The numbers quoted here are estimates based on data from multiple sources.

65km Course Improvements.
GPT progress has brought on some improvements to the ~65km course.

For 2021 there'll be:
Less use of the Mt Difficult dirt road.
A more gradual descent from the Mt Difficult Rd to Chatauqua and then into the existing courses compared to the previous drop down from Boroka lookout.
Possible flow in to the Lake Wartook lookout.

Distance is about 65.4km

The Saturday 8km Course. (2pm)

A flatter course without the qualification requirements of the longer Sunday runs.   On the western side of Fyans Creek you'll be running on flat paths and trails. On the eastern side of the creek you'll experience undulating (ok small bumps that some will call hills) terrain amidst the bushland of the Grampians National Park.



The Saturday 2km Course. (1pm)

When it hits the bush it's a 'flat-ish' path with significant rocky sections.  Out to Venus baths and back.
