Half Marathon (21.1km)
The YRF will be one of the fastest regional races in Queensland. Taking in the entire Foreshore, Kraken Waterpark and many other local iconic attractions the 21.1km course will be sure to keep you interested. The 4 loop course will make the Yeppoon Half Marathon a very supporter and family friendly race as you will start, finish and loop past the crowd and your cheer squad precinct more frequently that any race we can think of.
The Half Marathon is run in an anti-clockwise direction. From the Starters Gun, you will head North out along the promenade past the Yeppoon Surf Lifesaving Club then onto Farnborough Road. From there you will go past Rotary Park, Surf Side Caravan Park, pas the Yeppoon Sharks Swimming Club Aid Station all the way out to the Northern Turn point. You will then head back into town, at this point expect plenty of support as you come back back through the crowd and finish area. You will be directed up through the palms to the Spirit Stone (2nd aid station area with water), past the Keppel Kraken and out to the Yeppoon Sailing Club turn point. Then you head back North along the picturesque promenade & encouragement from your supporters. On the Final lap heading South you will come past the Surf Club and turn into the Finishing chute level with the new stage area.
