It was SO GOOD to return to racing trails at Yarra Bend today as we kicked off our Trail Running Series after an 18month hiatis. Check the smiles on these faces! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for a great event. Just wondering if there was meant to be a prize for the HITT sprint finish. Seemed to have be missed in the presentations

Brad Harper 😳

Thank you for putting this on! It was great to get out again, together(ish). A few of us FrontRunners were recalling when you gave our club some discount entries a few years ago, and three of us came to Westerfolds Park and were hooked. There’s up to 15-20 of us at the events now! Thanks for making us welcome. Ok better go gee myself up for that nasty start at Smiths Gully…

Thanks for a brilliant event! We had a ball this morning. Thank you 😊

YES!!!! We can race this Sunday at Yarra Bend!

We are thrilled to confirm that the Trail Series race #1 will take place on Sunday 20th June with 5km, 10km and 15km races along the flowing trails beside the Yarra River.

The confirmed easing of restrictions means we can proceed with the event whilst maintaining the safety of all participants and the broader community.

Races will commence in a series of wave starts (so we don’t exceed the permitted group sizes) but be filled with enthusiasm and extra energy because WE’RE ALLOWED TO RACE!!

Check the website for a full explanation of the format – and get excited to be hitting the trails again! Entries remain open until Sunday morning.

We had some fun gathering on the beach last week for a photo shoot with the Surf Coast Times to acknowledge the ‘count down of the century’ to the 10th year of our biggest event.

Securing the front page with our own ‘jump photo’ was an absolute bonus and illustrates the growing reputation and following the event has generated here on the Surf Coast. Also shared are some of our behind the scenes photos to show you some other angles.

Entries are super solid with over 1,300 runners expected to take to our local trails in their quest to explore 100km or 50km of the Surf Coast solo or in a relay team.

We regret to advise that race #1 of the Trail Running Series has been RESCHEDULED to Sunday 20th June 2021.

The continuation of Victoria’s lockdown has meant that we cannot conduct the race that was initially planned for this Sunday – so we’ve just postponed the fun for 2 weeks instead!

All current entries to race 1 are automatically transferred to the new date, and if you cannot make the new date then you can claim a full refund. All entrants will receive an e-mail explaining their options.

We were soooo looking forward to reuniting on the trails this weekend – but now we’ve got even more to look forward to when lockdown is done!

So keep smiling, get vaccinated and we’ll see you on June 20th at Yarra Bend!
