  3. 3. The course is over very fast and undulating compact earth. The small and medium sized loops have their first 200m, A - B - C rising slightly. The next 750m C - D - E - F - G is fast running as the course drops almost 20m in height over the 750m. Great underfoot terrain as the athletes pass through a lovely technical part of the course, F - G. This is a young palm tree reforestation area. From G you have what will prove to be the toughest part of the course with one short steep hill and drop before immediately rising again for well over 100m to the top end of the course. This hilly section of the course runs along side a cliff edge with stunning views into the mountains. The course turns back for the start again and H with a nice recovery 150m before heading into the next lap or last 200m of the race to the finish L. The large loop will veer off at B - I where the athletes will cross a short road covered with deep compact earth for the event. Here they will enter into a playing field and again fast running will be the order of play here as the next 600m, I - J - K is over flat and fast ground. They will then turn sharp exiting the playing field at K to bring them behind the finish line and onto the next lap.
