This year we are introducing a new course for the 2km and 4km loops of the Dorne Cup.

New 2km Loop for Dorne Cup

This new loop cuts out the old horse paddock and the 2km distance is made up by an extended section that goes around the children’s soccer fields.  This means the 2km loop finishes with a straight line run back up to the finish chute, as opposed to finishing on a corner as in previous years.


New 4km Loop for Dorne Cup

 We are cutting out the old horse paddock and replacing this with two sections of bush run and a different section around the rugby fields.  There will also now be only one water crossing in the 4km loop.
