Quick facts about Speights West Coaster Marathon 2017

Marathon course

To kick off the Marathon, you will start from the Bethells private land (right next to the Bethells Reserve) and head in land and head inland for approximately 1km along a 4 wheel drive track and then work your way up towards Razorback Ridge. At the top of the ridge you turn right and head in the direction of the sea. At the 1st fork in the 4 wheel drive track you turn right and head down for approximately 1km.

From here there is a solid climb with some great views on your way up. Be sure to appreciate them as you go.

Once you've ticked off a few tough km's, you'll arrive on Razorback Ridge. (Remember it's all private land once leaving the beach so strictly no training on this part of the course please!). You will head along Razorback ridge for 2 or 3 km with some great 360 degree views of the coast line and ranges.
