What you need to know:
It is a tough 22km with 1200m of climb and 650m of descent. Make sure you carry 1 litre of water.
It is a beautiful run that leads from Cedar Flats via the top of Northbrook Mountain and England Creek to the rainforest at the top of Mount Glorious, finishing at the clearing opposite the Maiala picnic area.
Description: from Cedar Flats valley climb east up the ridgeline firebreak, it is initially steep, but then runnable. Turn left at the first junction, then right at Northbrook Mountain junction and go down to England Creek (midpoint and manned check point) then there is a continuous 600m climb up to the top of Mount Glorious.
When you are about to reach the top, turn left onto the historic stone-lined western ridge single trail through the rainforest. There are a few stone stairs you will climb to reach the Western Window from which it is a flat run to the finish at the clearing opposite Maiala Park. Also, see map and profile below.
