Introducing a new event for 2021.  We would like to show our bush trails.

Our trails are like the rest of our course, as flat as a pancake.  You will get back to nature and might event spot some of our local wildlife, our stunning kangaroos and native birds. This course is great for the beginner trail runner or those who really want to soak up their surroundings and get back to nature. We will take you to the west side of the Goulburn River where you will run amongst our tall gums.

Tailwind Nutrition specialise in long course and endurance nutrition, however in this case we are pleased to announce them as our inaugural trail run sponsor because we know they also like to support runners when they go bush!
