Sun shines on Surf Coast for Race 4

Sunday, September 10, 2017

It’s been dubbed the most scenic of the Series and it’s not hard to see why. Race 4 of The Trail Running Series presented by The North Face took us to beautiful Anglesea on the Surf Coast and as the sun shone down, over 1,100 trail runners made the most of the Spring weather across 8km, 15km and 23km courses.

The fun got underway on Anglesea Beach with the HIIT Factory warm ups to get everyone pumped, then it was off along the wide sandy stretches before hitting the coastal trails.

The littlest of competitors also got their taste of the action with the new 1.9 Kids’ Run, around the Anglesea River and up the finish chute for our youngest little champions.

We hope you loved the running today, and we can’t wait to see you in just four weeks’ time for the 5th and final race of the Series – the Night Race, at Studley Park.
