From the rear of the Honest Lawyer, participants will run through the car park and head out towards Monaco Peninsula along Point Rd.
At the Monaco Boat Club, turn right onto Martin St. Continue along Martin St to the end of the peninsula, follow the road left around the point. Before the beach, turn left into Rainier St and then turn right back onto Martin St. Return the way you came back to the Honest Lawyer water station (approx. 4km mark).
Pass the Honest Lawyer entrance and veer right onto the "Great Taste Trail" shared trail.
From this point on, the course follows the "Great Taste Trail" as far as it goes. There are 4 short sections where the trail shares a roadway, please be conscious of vehicles and give way where necessary. There will be extra arrows to point you in the right direction. These will be either on the ground or signposts.
After another 3.5km, opposite the Richmond Aquatic Centre, turn right and follow the "Great Taste Trail" towards Mapua. This turn will have a marshal.
