New start time of 5:30am! All times adjusted accordingly.The following table outlines the cutoffs that will be applied for each checkpoint. The same checkpoint cutoff times apply for both 100km and relay runners. Cutoffs will be strictly enforced and any runner not able to leave a checkpoint before the designated cutoff time will be removed from the race.
Blanket Bay checkpoint has moved to the Day Visitor area at the southern end of the campground. Runners will enter the campground on the Katabanut Track rather than off the beach. This means you won't run through the campground as done previously. It will be heavily marked to make the changes clear. NO CREW will be allowed at Blanket Bay due to Parks restrictions. Crew can meet their runner at the Otway Lighthouse carpark.
Cross the bridge and continue straight ahead through the trees on the footpath until you see the aidstation.
Johanna aid station is at the southern end of the campground. You exit the beach not long after crossing the creek and then make your way along the 4wd track until you reach the checkpoint. It is a long tough section from here to the Gables so be sure to fill up your bottles/bladder. Look towards the beach access to pick up the trail-head which climbs parallel to the beach.
There will be an unmanned water drop at Moonlight Head just past the farm gate. Follow the fence-line until a stile turns you left into the forest. Don't miss this turn! It is only 5km to the Gables aid station from Moonlight Head.
Turn right at the Gables junction signpost (follow GOW race arrows) a short distance to the Gables checkpoint. Return to the junction and go straight ahead this time.
The following locations will provide basic food and drinks, first aid, timing, etc. Checkpoint closing times are dependant on when the last runner comes through but cut-offs are clearly listed below.
