The Potato Hopper (New in 2021)

This wonderful half marathon is a true beast! The first stretch winds steeply uphill through shaded gullies and intricate dolerite steps. Along Milles Track, the course levels out but the technical terrain slowly builds. Eventually, the rocks become the trail – a chance to unleash your inner mountain goat. This unique experience culminates in the Potato Fields boulder crossing, a special place in the heart of kunanyi. A speedy downhill single track provides welcome relief on the legs, shooting you onto the historic Pipeline Track. It’s time to put your foot down in the back half, with a smooth, gradual decline all the way back to Fern Tree Park.
