Everything you need to know about the Half on the Hill

The Course
Trail running with magic views of the beautiful oasis that is Griffith
Set on picturesque Scenic Hill in Griffith, the Half on the Hill is trail running at its best.
Starting at John Piccoli Reserve at the top of Doolan Crecent in Griffith (see "Getting Here" below), runners head north along the fire trail at the base of Scenic Hill. After wrapping around the old incinerator runners cross Scenic Hill, around the golf course and across to the old MTN9 TV studios on Remembrance Drive.

Whilst this is marked as the half-way point, don't be fooled. A loop to Dalton Park and back needs to be completed first. Teams will change runners here whilst those running the half marathon will continue on.

The last half of the course wraps around the base of the hill, with a few gentle climbs coupled with some down hill relief. Runners will return to John Piccoli Reserve (but not before a final up hill burst) to the cheers of those gathered to celebrate your achievement.
