    Hey dennis, nice for you to plot the previously “text only” race course. This saves me the trouble from having to do it myself. Would you be joining this one?

      I’ll be running this event as a pacer (unofficially of course) with target finish time of 4h 50m (6:52/km average pace). This may be a little slow for many (including you Sam) but this pace is targeted for debutantes aiming to finish within cutoff of 5h. To those wanting to do the same feel free to join me. 😀

      Good luck runners!

      This map rendering is not official, it was based on text-based map issued before the official ones were distributed. This was just a guide to give you an idea on where the route goes. For official maps please consult your race kit.
