NewRun / Hill to Harbour
Half Marathon15 April 2018
Price:From $65 (plus processing fee)
A wonderful 1/2 marathon course which traverses the coast and harbour of Newcastle.
Who's it for?
Participants who are looking for a longer running goal. The 1/2 marathon is the fastest growing category distance in the world and is an ideal tester for anyone who who prefers long and slow.
This event is essentially an out and back version of the 10km Hill to Harbour course, (starting from the new finish line at Queens Wharf) with a 550m out and back section added at the start. This is a very beautiful course being staged from Queens Wharf and Market St Lawns (the old rail line) and traversing the harbour, beaches and parks along the Newcastle coastline.
On arrival at the turn point at Bar Beach (actually the start line of the 10km event) you will be greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of runners preparing themselves to race. You will of course need every bit of enthusiasm as you turn and head back up the other Hill that makes up the Hill to Harbour.
Saturday 14 April - Queens Wharf Hotel off Wharf Rd Newcastle from 10am -4.30pm.
Sunday 15 April - Race Day - Half Marathon: Queens Wharf Hotel off Wharf Rd Newcastle from 5.30am.
Please park in the eastern end of Newcastle and walk to the start and finish line. There is ample parking for your arrival, but consider the paid parking limits and ealy start time.
