What is the Salomon Trail Running Series?
The Salomon Trail Running Series is designed to present trail running for all that it can be: scenic, accessible, not overly technical and fun for everyone!
The series includes short, medium and (new for 2013) long course races all on exhilarating trails through the wilderness all within 1hr drive of Melbourne that will get you out in some magnificent landscapes with your running shoes on.
...ah.... you'll smell the fresh eucalypt air and join over 1,000 other runners as we run through fern-fringed valleys, weave through towering stands of gums and sweep along flowing trails beside rivers and creeks.
