Same as the JW course to start with, but then continuing for a second lap, turning right at the end of lap 1, then  proceeding up the Kahikatea Track. This is with an ascent on well-graded bush track. A left turn near the top of this track exits to a right turn point well up the firebreak run up on Lap1, to continue thereafter as per lap 1.
Junior Women: 4.77m, 280m climb, 250m descent, 1 Lap
The start is on Market Rd s and commences with a straight uphill section of sealed road approx 230m long. Turn left into the quarry and continue left onto a 4WD gravel road onto a gravel and eventually grassy/tracked 4WD firebreak to a saddle below the Grampians tower and top of the first climb (300climb). A turn circle takes runners back down the same firebreak for 300m before turning left onto bush track and firebreak to a second saddle, and then turns right to connect with a quarry access road (half seal) that returns runners to the bottom of the hill and the finish on level, sealed road.
