Julian Dent is Australia’s only  representative in the long final race today.  He starts at 9:18pm (AEST). He has to traverse 15.9km of forest with 690m climb and visit 31 controls. The race has a spectator control about ¾ of the way through but it is typical long course setting with long legs and some tricky technical bits particularly before the end. Runners will have to be feeling strong and energetic to complete this course.

The women have 10.3 km and 450m climb with 21 controls. 45 runners in each course will attempt to become world champions today.
