Reconnect with the wilderness and the trail running community…

Race 1 wave start lists are now live on the Trail Running Series website and linked below.




All runners who entered before 9:00am Friday have been allocated a specific start wave, please check the list and ensure you line up for your designated start.
(We would greatly appreciate it if you did not swap around or start in another wave as it compromises our plans as we cannot exceed the group size limits. Requests with a good reason can be discussed at the registration marquee on the day. Thank you.)
Entries are still open with new entrants being allocated a wave start time after pre-entered runners, as follows:

  • Long course: new entrants will start between 9:40am and 9:45am
  • Medium course: new entrants will start between 11:05am and 11:10am
  • Short course: new entrants will start between 12:15pm and 12:35pm

Please arrive no more than 20mins before your start and read the event program as refresher for how things will roll. It’s going to be super fun to be back on the trails together!

COVID Update 2:30pm 16 June: We are thrilled to confirm that the Trail Series race #1 will take place on Sunday 20th June as planned. Races will commence in a series of wave starts (so we don’t exceed the permitted group sizes) and runners are asked to arrive no more than 20minutes before your start time and leave soon after finishing. All event details are explained in the event program HERE.

The Trail Running Series is all about making trail running accessible to as many people as possible. You don’t need years of experience nor all the latest gear… all you need is a come-and-try-it attitude and a bit of fitness to get around the course. All races are designed to be fun, scenic and rewarding for all runners with a friendly event atmosphere that is truly welcoming of everyone.

It’s time to reconnect with the wilderness and the trail running community by being part of the 2021 Trail Running Series. SEE YOU THERE!

Last year was my first year trail running and first time at the series and I loved it. I couldn’t wait to run again this year and experience more trails, more cheers, more spills and more thrills. Loved it!

Mary – Series runner

Honestly the most fun and friendliest events I’ve ever participated in. Such a great size and awesome vibe along the trails.

Michael – race 2 and 3 runner

The Trail Running Series kept me motivated to run during the cold winter months. Each event offered an excuse to escape the city and to spend some mindful, quality time outdoors in the fresh air and nature. After each trail run I felt invigorated and inspired. Bring on 2020 (and 2021)!
