The events will be held in Ourimbah State Forest near the intersection of Middle Ridge Road and Red Hill Road. It's approximately 4.7 km into the forest from the entry at Yaramalong Rd. It is a dirt road and accessible with a standard vehicle.

If you are having difficulty google "Treetops Adventure Central Coast" (it's right at the Forest entry).

There is plenty of parking available.

Held in the Ourimbah State Forest on Middle Ridge Road and surrounding trails. The course starts and finishes on the 'closed to traffic' section of Middle Ridge Road where it meets Red Hill Road. It's an approximately 2.8 km run that starts on a wide fire. Just after the 1.1 km mark it changes to single track for the journey home. It's not flat and there is enough undulation and varied terrain to challenge both of you. There is approximately 50m of elevation.
