The Cromwell Half-Marathon and 10k Run or Walk course takes you around the shores of beautiful Lake Dunstan, all the way to Pisa Moorings and back, with a backdrop of spectacular mountain views.  This is a family-friendly, fun event which attracts runners of all levels.
The course will be well marked with bright pink arrows, with marshals on key corners. Aid stations with water and electrolyte approximately every 5 km and at the start/finish.

Course Details

10k run/walk starts with the Half Marathon solos and teams at 10 am at the Alpha Street Reserve. Run north along the lake track (underneath the bridge) to the Lowburn Boat Ramp/inlet (supporters can easily drive here) before turning around and running back the same way, finishing at the Alpha Street grounds.

The Half Marathon course heads out north along the lake (under the bridge) with the turn around point in Pisa Moorings about 1.6km past the footbridge. Supporters will be able to drive to this point and watch their runners turn around.

After the runners have turned around they run back the way they’ve come to the finish at Alpha Street Reserve.

  1. Start to Freeway (on lake) (1.2 km from start)
  2. Freeway (on lake) to bay past Aurum (2.2 km from the last change point).  1 and 2 can be combined to make one 3.4 km run.
  3. Bay past Aurum to 45th Parallel (3 km from last change point.)
  4. 45th Parallel to Footbridge at Pisa Moorings  (2.4 km from the last change point)
