ABOUT US

The biggest names in Australian running events have joined forces to bring a nationwide trail run series. Locations are hand-picked by local runners. East Gippsland, Woolongong, and Brisbane will see runners enjoy a weekend-long trail running festival. 

Mark (Emo) Emerton from Elite Energy Events and Wayne Larden from the Sydney Running Festival have joined forces to create this amazing new trail run series, which will not only showcase stunning trails across Australia but also reward runners with hefty prize purses.
 
The first event scheduled for 19-21 November in Lakes Entrance will see runners choosing from a number of trail runs over the weekend, with 10km, 55km, and 26km runs to choose from – or better yet, do all of them. Beginners and kids haven’t been forgotten either with the Tiny Trails and 5km trail runs being offered on Saturday and Sunday morning.
