Prepared and measured by Stephen Jackson
The start is in the last carpark on the right before the loop. Two laps of the loop, then out to the turn at the arch and back, around the loop, out to the turn and back, around the loop, and finish where you started.
Numerous speed humps dot the course (44 during the course of the 10k to be precise) , but a good bitumen surface makes it a good course for a PB - and if a PB is out of the question, then the views at the start/finish area at North Head are spectacular. All kilometres are marked, and the distance is certified.
The start area map is here.
