Sat 6 Oct THE TRAIL RUNNING SERIES PRESENTED BY THE NORTH FACE, RACE 5 NIGHT RACE, KEW (VIC)
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. You will run through valleys lined with tree ferns, weave through towering gum trees and sweep along flowing trails beside rivers, creeks, beaches and lookouts. The Race 5 night race returns in 2018 as the finale! A fantastic night race around the Yarra Trails race in Kew followed by a massive post event party at Yarra Bend Park immediately afterwards. In addition to the NEW location for the Series celebrations of Yarra Bend Park will be the event landing on a Saturday night! This is an INCREDIBLE RACE EXPERIENCE as all runners light up the trail with your own (head) torch and weave along the flowing, non-technical trails in a long line of light. When: Saturday 6th October 2018. Where: Yarra Bend Park, Kew (exact oval location to be announced shortly) What: Long Course: 15km Medium Course: 10.8km Short Course: 5km This unique trail running event was the first of its kind in Australia in 2016 with the entire race being held after dark � making it an incredible race experience for everyone. The courses will be the exact same as those used in Race 1 at Studley Park in previous years giving you some familiarity but you will be amazed at just how different they feel when you�re vision is restricted to the cone of light emanating from the front of your torch. We�re sure you�ll find it to be a great experience and a suitable finale to another great series. The short, medium and long course races will be conducted in the same way as at the other race locations with a single mass start for each distance, but all runners will be carrying a torch allowing you to follow the trails and the reflective course markings. The courses remain the same as 2016 (and as raced in the original race 1 at Studley Park) so all returning runners will be familiar with the trail, challenges and rewards; whilst also giving peace of mind and comfort for those new to night running. There is a great sense of unity in night running! Get set to light up the trails as one big line of luminescence... 2018 Race dates: Race 1: Sunday 17 June � Westerfolds Park - 5km / 11km / 15km Race 2: Sunday 15 July � Smiths Gully - 7km / 13km / 18km Race 3: Sunday 5 August � Silvan, Dandenong Ranges � 7km / 15km / 21km Race 4: Sunday 16 September � Anglesea � 8km / 15km / 23km Race 5 - night race: Saturday 6th October � Yarra Bend, Kew � 5km / 11km / 15km  contact: Annie Knight. email: info@rapidascent.com.au. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
