RESULTS | SPLITS (Winsplits)

Heart Rate Hills, Ryhope

WARNINGS: This event is in the Sugarloaf State Conservation Area. The event area has a large number of subsidence cracks and you may encounter leeches and ticks. Some subsidence cracks are marked with red/white tape. A particular danger is star pickets on subsidence survey lines which have been left with ~400mm protruding above the ground. Most of these have white PVC tubing around them to mark them and reduce the danger, but some may be naked.

From Toronto travel west on The Boulevard / Awaba Road / Cessnock Road for 9 km. 400 m before the freeway turn left into the Lake Macquarie Memorial Park and follow signs to parking in the main car park. The assembly area is through the fence 200 m to the south. Please be respectful of the nature of the Memorial Park and of others visiting it.
