Export to calendar Back

'Great North Walk'
Location: KP Village Green, Kissing Point Road, South Turramurra

With bush, fire trail, bush track, creek and river surrounding South Turramurra on three sides, runners can expect to pretty much all get a taste of 'off bitumen' here.
For those signing up for the annual SSS Anniversary Cup 'Mass Start' option (line course), you are guaranteed more than a taste. A great area with heaps of SSS variety - and with Ron in charge, bound to be memorable events.

Note that the mass start line course option means there can potentially be two winners in each age category (score/line). As a wonderful way to engage in a bit of head to head racing, we urge competitors to strongly consider this annual classic format.

** Anniversary Cup SSS Points allocation:
In EACH CLASS the winner is treated as 600 score points and gets a nice 100%. Other runners in the same AC-class get a relative percentage points. e.g. If the SVWL winning time is 50minutes, then a runner on 55 minutes will earn 91% (50/55), and 60 minutes 83% (50/60) etc.
