Falls Creek Mountain Raid - Trail Runs
The Falls Creek Mountain Raid Trail Run events are designed to be welcoming and inclusive of all runners, not just hard core races for the ultra elite. Four different trail runs will be conducted over the weekend and runners can pick whichever events suit them.
Choose up to three of the four trail runs:
Saturday 13th February 2016
- 10.75km Alpine Ash Run - 10:00am
- 4.2km Summit Sprint - 4:00pm
Sunday 14th February 2016
- 19km Heathy Spur Run - 8:30am
- 5.5km Falls Creek Explorer - 8:45am
The trail running component of the Falls Creek Mountain Raid provides some superb alpine running across the weekend; past stately old snow gums, beside bubbling streams, over mountains and through stunning natural landscapes and is simply spectacular running.
The courses have been designed to provide variety and personal challenge, whilst utilising the excellent trails around Falls Creek and showcasing its’ breath-taking natural beauty.
The courses are fully marked and marshalled, and will be held along a mixture of single track and double track that will keep you on your toes. The courses are moderately technical so you’ll need to watch where you put your feet for part of it and the rest of the time you can enjoy the endless alpine views and mountain vistas that surround you.
