To summarise the full route: Day one, the new addition to the route, offers runners the opportunity of running through Reins Nature Reserve. Day two starts at the mouth of the Gourits River meandering along the coastline with a variety of beach sections and knarly technical rock sections finishing at Boggom’s Bay. Day three starts at Dana Beach, with an easy beach section prior to heading over a number of cliffs offering expansive views of the ocean.
