The Course:

Normally the run starts at O'Reilly's guest house on the Saturday morning, running to the Binna Burra resort, via The Border Track, and overnighting in Binna Burra, in 2013 we introduced a 42.195km option for Saturday morning starting at Binna Burra, and this option will also be available this year. Please go to the race registration page for more details.

On the Sunday, the return trip is made, back to O'Reilly's also via The Border Track.

The distance has been measured by a 'steel wheel', and is 21.3km from the designated start points to the designated finish points for a one-way crossing. The 42.195km event, starts about 400 metres into the forest, to achieve the correct distance. Please treat any gps readings with caution because of the forest canopy cover.

New Rules/Requirements for the 42.195km Saturday event:

The experience of running the 42.195km in the last 3 years has been that we will have to introduce qualifying and a complusory stop of 3 minutes at the O'Reilly's turn around. The reason for this is that we have become concerned about the well being of the runners in the last 10km, and hopefully our new requirements will address our concerns.

Qualifying:

All 42.195km competitors must have completed 5 X 42.195km Road Marathons or at least one "Hostile" trail race 30km or longer.

Whereas those running the 21.3km must have completed 1 road 21.1km race(further race).

Complusory 3 min stop at O'Reilly's:

This is to allow all 42.195km competitors to recharge their hydration units etc. Failure to stop for the full 3mins will result in disqualification. No discussion will be entered into, this is Rule No 1.

Complusory Gear:

You must be carrying at least 1 litre of fluid in a suitable container at the start, and it must be refilled at O'Reilly's (21.3km runners need to be carrying 600ml of fluid at the start)

Start Times

The 42.195km race starts at Binna Burra.

Those who are capable of a road Marathon faster than 4hrs 15mins will start at 7AM Sharp. (please be at Race Headquarters at 6-30AM)

Those who are not capable of a 4hrs 15mins road Marathon will start at 5-30AM, please be at Race Headquarters at 5AM.

The Saturday 21.3km starts at O'Reillys at 8-30AM, and once you have entered you will receive instructions as to how we carpool to the 21.3km start. It is a 140km round trip from Binna Burra to O'Reilly return in a car, and about 50% of the drive is on a winding mountain road, so we need to restrict the number of vehicles travelling up to O'Reilly's.

More of our History:

Back in the 1990's, one of the "Friends of the Lamington Classic" was a cartoonist, and used to produce a yearly T-Shirt. I only have 2 of these(see below). Do you know who this cartoonist was?, do you have any of these T-Shirts?, If so, I want to do more T-Shirts for the future Lamington Classics.
