Everything you need to know about the Half on the Hill

The Course
Set on picturesque Scenic Hill in Griffith, the Half on the Hill is trail running at its best.
 
Starting at the radio station on Remembrance Drive (see "Getting Here" below), runners do a 4km loop around the race course before heading into the base of the hill. A flat run around the golf course and rodeo grounds turns into a scenic hill climb as you enter suburban Griffith.
 
The half-way point (and change-over point for the teams) is at the top of Collina Oval. From here the work begins as you climb to the top of Scenic Hill and some incredible views of the City of Griffith. Some say the hard work is over as the hills are all done but don't be fooled - there is still 9km to go!
 
Bend your way around the western base of Scenic Hill and back to where you started at the radio station and the glory of finishing.

Getting Here
The run starts at the base of Scenic Hill, just 5 minutes from the Griffith CBD, with competitors meeting at the StarFM/2RG radio station on Remembrance Drive, directly opposite the entrance of Griffith Golf Club.
 
If you are keen enough to fly in on the morning of the race then make sure you wear your runners on the flight as you are literally less than 1km from the start line once you land!
 
After the race, grab some lunch at one of Griffith's amazing cafe's and restaurants. You won't be disappointed!
