Athlete's Foot 10km
Sunday 19th April 2020
The Athlete's Foot Bendigo 10km offers those that enjoy runs of this classic distance a satisfying challenge on a cross country course that will take in part of the McIvor Ranges.
For the novice runner who has not competed off the bitumen in an event, it is a perfect event to become more accustomed to running away from the bitumen without it being too rough. We expect it will attract a few who enjoy 'light trail running' or find bitumen boring, too.

About the Course
Both the 5km and 10km courses start on Barracks Reserve and heads out towards Barrack Road then around the Liquid Ambers on Forest Drive. At the intersection of Forest Drive and Ambers Drive, the 10km participants turn right whilst the 5km participants continue straight on.
The 10km participants will head out on Forest Drive for approximately 2.5km before doing a U-Turn and returning to the intersection of Forest Drive and Ambers Drive again.
This time, the 10k participants will turn right and rejoin the 5km course.
From the intersection of Forest Drive and Ambers Drive, both the 5km and 10km courses will weave through bushland to Barrack Street and then join the beautiful McIvor Creek Trail. Participants will follow this through and will cross back over the McIvor Creek at Shakespere St and then turn right onto Beauchamp St and another right onto Pohlman St.
At the the intersection of Wright and Pohlman streets, all runners will turn right and head for Barrack Reserve along Wright street.
Runners will make their final dash onto the grassed oval into the finishing chute at Barrack Reserve.
