People running uphill during the Tolosa Half

This is by far our most popular course in the Series! This is an authentic mountain half-marathon that offers incredible diversity and is challenging. Runners in both events will leave the edge of suburbia, before the open woodland gradually morphs into a denser and greener mixed forest. From towering eucalypts to the lichen-ridden dolerite, the Tolosa Half has it all.  Runners will need to navigate some technical rocky terrain, but overall, it’s a course that flows very well.

The Sport (9.8km) sees runners turn around at the Old Hobartians Track while the Enduro (21.1km) runners will keep going for more jaw-dropping views and intricate hand-made wooden bridges, to The Springs, which are approximately the halfway point. Then it’s a beautifully flowing descent along the purpose-built North-South track.
