The Cromwell Half Marathon, 10k and Teams Relay that will be run this Sunday, 27 October, will be the first official event to make use of the new walk and cycle track that is being built along the shores of Lake Dunstan.
“The newly-built track will be great for our runners and hopefully contribute to better times all round,” says organiser Terry Davis from Highland Events.
As the track will not be completed all the way into the Cromwell Heritage Precinct, the route for the half marathon needed to be changed a for this year’s run. Both the half marathon and the 10k will start at the Alpha Street Reserve as in previous years with the 10k turn-around point being at the Lowburn Inlet. The half marathon route will continue along the new track, crossing the footbridge in Pisa Moorings that used to be the first turnaround point and go for another 1.6 km towards to new turnaround point. The finish line will remain at Alpha Street Reserve.
Online entries will close on Wednesday, 23 October at 8pm, but runners can still enter on the day from 8:30 am. Starting time for all routes is 10am sharp.
