The Tolosa Half

A half marathon on spectacular trail, climbing half way up a spectacular mountain; welcome to ‘The Tolosa Half’. Beginning in the lower altitudes of suburbia, the open woodland gradually morphs into a denser and greener mixed forest. From towering eucalypts right down to the lichen-ridden dolerite, you will experience it all. Navigating snippets of technical rocky terrain is a requirement, but the majority of trail will be like a smooth sailing on the Derwent (perhaps with a moderate sea breeze). More jaw-dropping views, intricate hand-made wooden bridges, and a beautifully flowing descent on the purpose-built North-South track await; just remember – those log rides and jumps are for crazy mountain bikers only!
