Event Hub: Site 9 Waterworks Reserve

Female runner on slope of Waterworks 10

Set amongst the peaceful parklands of Waterworks Reserve, these courses offer a mix of tracks and trails. We’re also exploring an amended route to remove the roads. The smooth and speedy single-track loops around the upper and lower reservoirs provide a scenic water foreground while kunanyi/Mount Wellington looms in the distance. Both courses then see runners make the obligatory climb up the steps of Gentle Annie Falls, which is sure to get the heart pounding! The 5km runners soon turn around while those taking on the 10km will head up and down the moderate slopes of the historic Pipeline Track, offering a fresh vantage point of the mountain over Turnip Fields. Then it’s a downward descent on fire trails and a final sprint around the historic reservoirs that have been providing Hobart’s water supplies since the 1800s.
