Nowra Athletics Club Inc. Presents the Shoalhaven King of the Mountain.
A 32km long distance event Sunday 7th July, 2013 starting at 9 am
Long distance runners love the Shoalhaven King of the Mountain! Whether you’re a marathon specialist, a half marathon enthusiast or simply like running over mountains – then why not give it a go, you’ll enjoy the experience.
The “King” as it’s known locally, travels from the quiet rural village of Cambewarra (10 minutes from the township of Nowra) via a series of bitumen and gravel roads to the historic township of Kangaroo Valley. A 32km journey that takes in the best sights and native sounds of the local area. The “King” features several fresh water creek crossings (with concrete causeways), rolling hills through unspoilt bushland and glorious views of sheer cliff faces, valleys and ravines. The highest point of the race is Mount Scanzi - 24 kilometres from the start and approximately 360m above sea level. With breathtaking views at this point the course takes you down a steep descent and then on through the valley.
The Shoalhaven King of the Mountain is run and administered by the Nowra Athletics Club and has been an annual event for over 35 years. Drink and refreshment stations are provided at intervals of between 2 and 6 kilometres (see course map for further details). The course is run on public roads and all participants should take due care. Check the entry section here or above for online entry or downloadable PDF entry forms.

The race commences at 9 am sharp on Sunday 7th July 2013 from the Cambewarra Public School, Kalinga St, Cambewarra 2540.
