STROMLO Running Festival

Lightning Strike 30km

Back to all events

Date: Sunday, 20 November 2016

Time: 7:30 am - 11:30 am

Participants in the 30km event will initially complete the 10km course while then passing through the event hub before completing a second loop of 20km. The 10km course comprises of a route that skirts around the lower slopes of Mt Stromlo, providing some beautiful scenery with a few undulations, but nothing overly gruelling.

The 20km loop is more challenging and travels around the western part of Stromlo Forest featuring amazing views of the Brindabella mountains before ascending the western side of Mt Stromlo to take in all of the glory of Canberra. Some of the major climbs will provide a test for all runners and include the "Out-Back", "The Prelude" and "The Mother". The final few kilometres are a fast descent back down to the event hub and the finish line.

The 30km event does have a reasonably generous cut-off time of 4-hours and is therefore suited to a wide range of runners. If you have, or are capable of finishing a half marathon in under 2:30, you should be able to complete this event.

Drink stations will be provided at approximately every 5km along the entire length of the course and will provide water, Hammer Sports drink, and lollies.

It is important to note that the field will be capped at 400 participants, so make sure you enter early to ensure you don't miss out.

All finishers will receive a Mizuno 30km finishers t-shirt (RRP $50), a finishers medal, and a post race breakfast.

Course Map and Profile

Please note that due to on-going negotiations with other Stromlo Forest users, there may be some final small adjustments to the courses, but these maps provide what we hope will be the final course layouts.
