Most people will be unaware of the meaning behind the name of this course, which traverses up the Mt Harvey Trail in Lions Bay. The name refers to Captain John Harvey, the captain of HMS Brunswick who famously suffered a lost a limb in the 1794 battle known as the Glorious First of June, and who subsequently died from complications from the wound. Mount Harvey is named after Captain John Harvey and nearby Brunswick Mountain is named after his ship HMS Brunswick.

The course is steep and unrelenting, but not especially technical. It starts at the base of the Mt Harvey Trail and finishes at the peak of Mount Harvey. Participants should touch the summit marker to complete the course.
