For lovers of trails there can be no better way to celebrate our unique capital, conceived as a "city in the bush".  The course comprises mostly tracks and fire trails through Canberra's extensive tracts of native bushland, with some linking cycle paths through urban areas.  Starting and finishing at Regatta Point on Lake Burley Griffin, the route describes a wide circle including:

* Parliament House, Red Hill, Isaacs Ridge, Farrer Ridge
* Mt Taylor, Cooleman Ridge
* Stromlo Forest Park, National Arboretum
* Aranda Bushland, Black Mountain Reserve, Bruce Ridge, O'Connor Ridge
* Mt Majura, Mt Ainslie and Anzac Parade

The race is open to solo runners as well as relay teams of 4, with relay legs of around 25 km each.  The race will commence at 6 am for solo runners and 6.30 am for relay teams, with a midnight cut-off (18 hours for solo runners, 17.5 hours for relay teams).
