After leaving the beach at Skippers Canyon you will run along old gold mining water races, traverse many ridgelines and bluffs, reach several summits, cross bridges, meander through old gold mining tunnels, have fun running on awesome single track through beautiful beech forests, dig your heels in whilst descending screes, climb ladders alongside waterfalls and skip through refreshing low river crossings on the final stretch to the finish at Moke Lake… Fun times!
