South Coast Track Marathon – Cockle Creek

Tasmania’s South Coast Track hosts a 42 and 21 kilometre out and back run to Australia’s deepest south, and a 7km fun run. Competitors will encounter chilly winds, sprawling plains, rocky cliffs and lengthy boardwalks amongst some of Australia’s most stunning landscapes.

The event starts with a traditional indigenous Welcome ceremony, in the carpark of the community centre in the serene Cockle Bay. Competitors will make their way down Cockle Creek Road and onto the South Coast Track. The track winds through thick forest, solid boardwalks and a cool, tranquil valley. After a narrow and thick final 500 metres, competitors will meet a burst of sunshine on top of a seaside cliff, marking your arrival at the South East Cape.

Your obligatory photograph at Australia’s most southern point will be taken, then turn around and head back towards the finish line in Cockle Creek, thus completing your 42.2 kilometre marathon.
