Sun 26 Oct NED KELLY CHASE 100KM ULTRAMARATHON
Including a 50km solo, 4 x 25km relay, 100km RunNBike, 100km cycle challenge and 10km fun run, the 2014 Ned Kelly Chase embraces the true spirit of the chase and celebrates a remarkable period in our Nation's history. All events (except the 10km fun run) have variable start times that ensure entrants of all levels experience a "big" finish by aiming for a finish time of 2pm. This concept was terrific in 2013 and has been built on further for this year's event. The Ned Kelly Chase is at its heart a 100km running event. It utilises 100% sealed cycle and walking paths in North East Victoria, Australia. Its first 50km is an out and back on the World renowned Murray to Mountains Rail Trail. The second 50km is also an out and back, but on the cycle paths through Wangaratta on the banks of the Ovens River and One Mile Creeks, plus the cycle paths out through Oxley to Milawa. The RunNBike (2 runners but just 1 bicycle between them) uses the same course, as does the 4 x 25km relay and the 100km cycle challenge. The solo 50km event uses the second half of the course. The 100km cycle challenge entrants will each be provided with a random "arrest" warrant before they begin the chase. That warrant is for one of the runners on course and the troopers' task is to find the runner and make an arrest before they finish their run. The chase is on! Included in the entry fee is a high quality, fully sublimated running and cycling shirt and a ticket to the event presentations and dinner. That dinner is a sumptuous 3-course buffet affair with dishes that include ox-tail soup, mutton stew and cottage pie, wine trifle and bread and butter pudding. A myriad of delights are on offer for diners to enjoy. A 2014 event teaser has been produced and can be viewed at http://youtu.be/-unnE-ofx08 A 10km course overview is also available at http://youtu.be/1qfmAhFz1pU contact: Justin Scholz. email: justin@nedkellychase.com.au. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
 
Sun 26 Oct 10KM NED KELLY CHASE
The 10km Ned Kelly Chase is an urban trail race in Wangaratta, NE Victoria.

The "chase" also has an 1880's themed buffet dinner after the event and this will include dishes of the period such as ox-tail soup, mutton stew and cottage pie, wine trifle and bread and butter pudding. The field is capped and entry places are expected to sell out quickly. An over view of the course is available at http://youtu.be/1qfmAhFz1pU. contact: Justin Scholz. email: justin@nedkellychase.com.au. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
