What is the route like?

The stunning route from Newport to Clontarf has the best of both beach and harbour! You'll enjoy narrow undulating trails with spectacular views, alternating between headland and beach, then moving onto coastal trails. There’s a lot of beach in the first half! We highly recommend ankle gaiters and sand resistant shoes to keep out sand and debris. (Blisters, begone!) 

There are plenty of Surf Life Saving Clubs along the first half of your beautiful route, which means many opportunities for toilets and icy poles. Don’t forget to sanitise before you slurp down that Calippo! You must refill your water bladder EVERY TIME you see a water tap, even if you think you have plenty left. 

Once you get to the iconic Manly beach, you'll walk through the bustling Corso towards the harbour. This is your last chance for substantial food, water and coffee en route, so grab some lunch and fill up your CamelBak and bottles. Join the famous Manly to Spit walk and enjoy some of the most spectacular views in Sydney. 

As you pass around Dobroyd Head, you’re only a hop, skip and jump from Clontarf! Please leap through the finish arch, take a quick photo, collect your medal and head home to celebrate with your teammates. Woohoo! You did it!

Please note:  These routes are subject to change. We attempt, at all times, to adhere to the advised route. As we are immersed in nature, however, there may sometimes be circumstances beyond our control (pandemics, tides, fallen trees/branches, other safety aspects as advised by local councils) that require us to slightly alter the route. In any such cases these will be clearly marked and identified on Event Day.
