The Optus Junior Orange Mile course consists of 1 and 1/3 laps of the Gosling Creek bike/running track (asphalt).

Competitors start at the western end of the Gosling Creek Reserve and head in an easterly direction.
After crossing the finish line for the first time, competitors then complete a further full lap in an anti-clockwise direction back to the finish line (and past the cheering spectators for a second time overlooking Gosling Creek reservoir).

Each competitor will run on the approved course as directed and will not accept outside assistance.

All participants must wear the assigned numbered timing transponder correctly as per the instructions provided. The use of any other participant’s timing transponder is strictly prohibited as this would compromise the results and could lead to the disqualification of the participant and/or entire team (where applicable).
