The course has something for everyone and comes in distances ranging from 9.5km through to the Full Keppel’s 27km. Visit beaches, climb mountains and take in spectacular views.

You decide your distance during the event (refer coloured sections on course map – yellow dash shows return route); as long as you are back at the Hideaway by 2pm so that we dont need to come looking for you and allowing some socalising before return ferry departures.
