Devil's Lair Half Marathon

Cape Clairault 9.45am start (Indijup Beach)

Capable of a road half and want something more? Maybe tried the running leg of the Augusta Adventure race and found it too short? If so this is your next challenge!

There is support (water only) at Moses Rock (8km) and Gallows (16km). Runenrs should feel free to carry your own water. There is potable water at several creek crossings.

Be aware that 21.2km on this trail will feel closer to 30km on road. The run has many short sharp hills, some soft sections, some sections of rocky trail (You are not boulder hopping like the adventure races) and some twisty single track.

For a lift by bus meet at Margaret River at 8am or Cowaramup at 8.15am.

Hidden Cave 13.5km Run

Moses Rock 11am Start

Just a quick word of warning. Most of the 1/2 and marathon runners will be in front of you, and if you are a fast runner, you may be held up repeatedly on this run, due to the large amount of narrow track. Fast runners should seriously consider one of the longer distances.

You are in training for one of the big adventure races. Or you can probably run 10km or so, but wonder what this trail stuff is about. Or maybe you just want to run the best bit, and save your legs for another day. If so then this is the leg for you. But be warned, this is not the rails to trails.

This leg is characterised by its variety. Running wise its never that hard, a little technical in spots, and to be truthful, except for a few kilometres, rarely easy either. However this is all more or less runnable by even inexperienced (but careful) runners. The run has many short sharp hills, some soft sections, some sections of rocky trail (You are not boulder hopping like the adventure races) and some twisty single track. Still you should still train on trails - and not rails to trails.

We would estimate that this will take you as least as long as 20km on road.
