Held in one of South Australia’s best-kept secrets, and just 45 minutes from the CBD, the half marathon course takes in the Shiraz Trail between McLaren Vale and Willunga, with a loop along the rail trail between McLaren Vale and Seaford. The 10km and 5km courses are a fast dash towards Willunga and back.

The McLaren Vale half-marathon course has been measured to AIMS standards.
Due to COVID-19 Safe plans we will use a self-seeding 3 chutes system with run thru while maintaining 1.5m between you and the runner in front. Overall winners will be calculated on gun time and should start first. All others (incl age group awards) will be calculated on nett time. (the time starts when you cross the start line)
