Starting in the peaceful Lawson, this seemingly quiet mid mountains town is not often thought of for iconic Blue Mountains Running. However situated on the north side of the Highway this course won’t disappoint packing in some hills and visiting Empire Pass, with some stunning waterfalls nearby.

A simple two lap course. Runners start with a 500m out and back, then head out along the track towards the Queens Rd aid station at the 6.4k mark, with a decent climb thrown in for good measure on the way. When you reach the aid station simply turn and retrace your steps. When you reach the turn marshal at the top of the climb the short course runners have approx 2.5 ks to go.Turn right at the marshal and  head into Echo Bluff and the stunning Dante’s Glen.

Returning into the start finish line the long course runners will do it all again. 

Don’t let one of the shortest races distance wise in the series fool you, it certainly won’t be the quickest
