The Race starts right on the beach, and follows the coast crossing coconut tree lined creeks, before turning inland. Here the route goes through the forest and plantation covered mountains of the south. Different distances expose you to everything from Betel Nut, Pepper and Coffee plantations to tea estates. The route returns again along the coast to finish back on the beach.
