The course starts at Base Camp and consists of two loops that form a single lap ... the first loop is 6.9kms and has an altitude gain of 320m. It consists of a mixture of open 4wd grass tracks and single track. The end of the first loop passes back through Base Camp and the aid station before heading out onto your second loop which is 5.9kms long with an altitude gain of 260m. This loop is mainly single track through native bush with some shorter sections of open farm track and a couple of stream crossings to keep it interesting.
1/2 Lap = 2nd loop only
For those new to trail running or returning after a break ... the ultimate in an introductory trail race. Achieveable distance with a mixture of easy single track, a thigh numbing climb, some cruisy farm track and a delightful downhill on narrow single track with rocks and roots and stream crossings to keep you on your toes ... just a little krayzie!
Open to ages 8 - 100
1 Full lap
Whether this is your first trail event or you are wanting something a little longer than 10kms this distance is sure to challenge you and yet is easily achievable with the right training. This is the first distance that takes on the first loop ... straight into a gentle climb that gradually gets less and less gentle. With magnificent views across the valley this is the loop with the most altitude and attitude. At the end of loop one you pass through the aid station for some much needed refreshments before heading out on the 2nd loop as outlined in the 6km. Open to ages 13 - 100. Younger juniors may be considered upon completing the 6km twice previously and shown their ability.
The same as the 12.5km event but twice around. That means you get lots of krayziness as you pass through the aid station 3 times ... a true challenge for those at or stepping up to the half marathon level with a few extra k's thrown in along with some decent altitude.
Open to ages 16 - 100
Starting on Friday morning this is the one with the most generous cut off time. You can run all day Friday, through the night and into Saturday if you wish. 8 times around the loops, 8 times up the Gum Grove, 8 times down the flying gully ... it's 100kms you won't forget in a hurry. You really do have to be a little krayzie to take this one on! Lights compulsory in the dark hours. Ages 18 - 100+
The first of the ultras and the only one starting on Saturday. With an early morning start you'll get to cheer on the milers that are still on course as you make your way around 4 times ... that's 7 times through the aid station. With two decent climbs per lap you're going to know you've done an ultra by the time you cross the finish line. Open to ages 18 - 100
The Big Krayzie ... 100 miles of delightful views, krayzie altitude, steps, stiles, and hopefully some amazing star gazing ... 13 times around ... starting Friday morning you have until 8am on Sunday morning to complete the distance ... that's a generous 48 hours for those who may need it. Lights compulsory from 8pm to 6am. Do you have what it takes to complete the Krayzie Miler? Ages 18 - 100+
