Personal Achievement

We have a fantastic facility to allow runners to take all day to complete their distance, runners can run a lap, step off the track through a timing chip gate way, see family, have a rest, food, drink etc and then return for another lap, accumulating 8 laps for their Marathon Distance.

Friends, family and other runners can also buy a 5km lap pass and run a lap with their friend, family or work colleague to support them on their marathon endeavours.

The track configuration allows a wonderful variety of opportunities to have an amazing running experience.
