This is an event for a runners who are keen for a long and unique challenge. The 50km trail commences in the Dungog Common and makes its way on dirt roads and private farm tracks to the summit of Mt Richardson, before returning to the Dungog Common. It is an incredibly scenic run, on trail that is only accessible during Run Dungog. There will be four aid stations, although it is recommended you carry a hydration pack and some nutrition. The trail will be clearly marked.
For your safety, we do suggest you carry a bit of gear, in case of sprained ankle and just because of the amount of time you are on the trails - hydration pack, light waterproof jacket, hat, suncream, mobile phone, whistle, survival blanket (keep warm in case of sprained ankle), nutrition, water.
Please note the below course map is rough - a more detailed map will be provided to runners prior to the event, but this is the direction and general gist of the course.
