The half marathon course is acclaimed as one of the most beautiful – and fast – you will find anywhere. It features a full circumnavigation of the Omaha Peninsula, including 2km on the beach, and over the causeway and around the coastal reserve at Point Wells. Both the 5k and 10k runs follow the route around the peninsula, with the 5k turning around near the Surf Club, whilst the 10k continues right up to the Bird Sanctuary at the northern tip.
