Crossing the iconic Tasman Bridge

Tasmania's busiest and most iconic piece of infrastructure, the Tasman Bridge. At 1396m long, both 5km and 10km participants get to cross it as the only public event each year to have lane closure.


After running along the Bellerive Bluff, the course enters historic Bellerive Quay which offers brilliant coastal views, historical buildings and then runners move onto the new Kangaroo Bay precinct.
