Course maps

The 2019 course map can be found below. Thank you to Dave Mutter for designing this work of art. 

A Strava map of the course (including elevation) can also be found at the following link. Many thanks to Rob Collier, Matt Hewer and the rest of the AVR fast group for running the course and providing this map. Note that this run was only done with permission from the various landowners and can't be done in full by any other runners at any other time except for on Grizzly Day.


Please note that various sections of the course use private land and runners should not train on or access any private sections of the course at any time other than during the race.

Race Cut-Off information

Due to the nature of the course and the impact that the weather can have, we do not use absolute time cut-offs but enforce cut-offs based upon the time gap between the final runners and the runners ahead at certain points of the course. These cut-offs will be determined and published closer to race date once we have finalised this year's course.

Just as a general guide, the finishing time of the final runners in 2017 was 6 hours 34 minutes for the full 20 mile Grizzly and 3 hours 3 minutes for the shorter 9 mile Cub.

What's it all about?

Here's a taster of what you can expect from the Grizzly:


Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
