The start to the race is on the N6, approximately 9kms west of Macleantown (at the Cobongo turn off).  The route follows the N6 towards East London and enters the traffic circle at Merrifield School. 

Here the runners turn right to run down the hill towards the Christian Centre.  The runners then turn right into Wyse Avenue, left into Old Transkei Road to the Batting Road intersection.  Here they cross Batting Road, turn left onto the Batting Bridge and proceed to the Beacon Bay Country Club.
