The Course – SkySprint
The Hounslow Classic 10k is always run on the Friday afternoon of the weekend.
Maps and Elevations are HERE
The 10Km Race starts at Perrys Lookdown Campground and lookout. One runner will start every 10 seconds in order to minimise congestion on the narrow track. Runners will run down Perrys Lookdown to the majestic Blue Gum Forest and turn right. They then proceed through the valley past Acacia Flat until they reach Junction Rock.
From Junction Rock, runners begin the ascent of Rodriguez Pass. At first they keep to the left of Govetts Leap Brook, but as they climb higher, they cross back and forth across the water until reaching the base of Govetts Leap waterfall, where the spray from the falls keeps the track permanently wet (and often people on the track, too!). A steep ascent up bush track and steps under hanging mosses, ferns and frowning cliffs brings runners back out to Govetts Leap and from there back around the Western Rim Trail to Allview Escape and the finish!
Sounds easy right?
