Welcome to the Trail Running Series presented by The North Face
The Trail Running Series presented by The North Face takes your running off-road with a series of popular races at breath-taking wilderness locations within a 1hr drive from Melbourne.
Each of the five events in The Series includes a short, medium and long course race that gives you plenty of carefree, smile-inducing running through some magnificent natural landscapes.
We are excited to launch two new race locations, new kids' runs and a range of new ideas for 2018 to add to your trail running fun. Either way you will breathe in plenty of fresh air and grin from ear to ear as you run through valleys lined with tree ferns, weave through towering gum trees and sweep along flowing trails beside rivers, creeks, beaches and lookouts.
We guarantee you'll love it.
