2.4km / 1.5miles
Finish in the same place in which you started or prove an elevation loss of no less than 1m
To prevent participants running down a huge incline to get a good time we require them to finish the run in the same place in which they started. You can achieve this by either running a looped circuit or running out half way, turning around, and returning to your starting position. Alternately, if you've able to prove an elevation loss of no less than 1m through your fitness tracker, you will be permitted to run a point to point route.
Your second attempt must follow the exact same route as the first attempt
