All runners start at Coronation Park. 5K participants run 2.5km along the Martin Goodman Trail (MGT) and then return to the start area. 10K participants run 5km out on MGT and the return to the start area. 15K participants run 5km along the MGT and return to the start area, where 10 meters in front of the starting arch there will be a turning point (pylon with marshall) where you’ll loop and head back out for a 2.5km loop. The 15K completes the 10K and 5K courses.
5K = 2.5km out and back.
10K = 5km out and back.
15K = 5km out and back plus 2.5km out and back.
Combines both of the above courses.
