The Rotary Team Challenge Half Marathon is 21.1km long. The event takes teams of 2 to 4 runners or walkers on a journey from Chidlow to Swan View through the picturesque West Australian countryside.
The course will take the teams from Chidlow along the Kep Track to Mt Helena before switching on to the Railway Heritage Trail through Parkerville and the John Forrest National Park to finish at the location of the old Swan View Railway Station. Towards the end of the course participants will pass through the old railway tunnel which at 262 metres in length, is very dark inside. Head or hand held torches are recommended.
