Sun 5 Aug THE TRAIL RUNNING SERIES PRESENTED BY THE NORTH FACE, RACE 3, SILVAN, DANDENONGS (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 Silvan area of the Dandenongs is quite simply a magnificent part of the world and Race 3 is often the highlight of the series for many runners (despite being the hardest races). We are stoked to announce that the Silvan race will see the return of the 2.2km KIDS RUN to let our little champions experience the fun of trail running again! Sunday 5 August � Silvan, Dandenong Ranges � 7km / 15km / 21km When: Sunday 5 August 2018 Where: The Silvan Reservoir Park, Dandenong Ranges What: Long Course: 21km Medium Course: 15.5km Short Course: 7.2km Kids Run: 2.2km You�ll race along trails that wind through mighty Mountain Ash that seemingly reach to the sky overhead, you�ll run past lush tree ferns and gullies of verdant undergrowth all in the friendly company of the local birdlife, including crimson rosellas, kookaburras and the superb lyrebird. It�s the toughest (but most rewarding) of the series with all courses being a few kms longer and noticeably hillier in comparison to Races 1 and 2. The trails are still non-technical and runners of all backgrounds will return with smiles from ear to ear - but - prepare yourself for a challenge because these are tough races! So make sure you join us for Race 3 at Silvan as we step it up, up, up a notch with a challenging but oh-so-rewarding run in a beautiful part of the world! 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.
