Lights, neon and celebrations at Night Race

Friday, September 23, 2016

It was a sublime spring night in September, just a regular Friday for most Melburnians. But not for a special group of people united by trailrunning, who ran through the night, illuminating the trails of Yarra Bend for the final race in the 2017 HOKA ONE ONE Trail Running Series.

Night Race Studley Park Kew


Hundreds of runners and even more supporters brought Studley Park to life as they journeyed their way along the short, medium and long courses, armed with luminous glowsticks, headtorches and reflective gear.

Night Race Studley Park Kew start

Flying across the terrain, footbridges and paths, and shooting along the fairy-lit finisher’s chute, to the sound of cheering and cowbells that echoed out across the sleepy Yarra River and back to the Studley Park Boathouse, where a special Series finale party and presentations ensued.
