TrailsPlus Urban Trail Series - Race 1
2km 5km 10km 21km 42km 50km
Welcome to the home of Trailsplus. Brett does 90% of his training in Brimbank Park and along the river trails that are used by the longer distance courses in the Brimbank Park run. This event has a specific focus on an outdoor healthy lifestyle. It is inclusive of all levels and ages with a distance to suit everyone. You may choose to walk, run or a bit of both. As always our aim is to bring you a friendly, well organised, memorable and fun event.
We hope you will come and join us either as a participant or as a spectator encouraging all as they strive to achieve their goals, be it the 2km fun run or 50km endurance.
If you would like to help out on the day please let us know. We would love to have you helping as a volunteer.
Teams Challenge - School, Club, Corporate
Enter as a team from your school, or club, or workplace. There are great prizes to be won. Earn 1 point for each kilometre covered, so the winning team will be the one covering the most distance. For example a team of 10 running 10km each scores 100, a team of 6 with one 50km runner and 5 10km runners scores 100 and a team of 30 running 5km each scores 150. It's not about how fast, but how far! Just include your team name when you enter.
All Trailsplus events donate $1 of each participant's race entry fee to CanTeen, the Australian organisation for Young people Living with cancer.
UPDATE: In 2017, there were 430 race entries, plus 2 very generous people who each donated $100 cash, and $254 online donations. So Trailsplus has donated a total of $884 to Canteen from the Brimbank Park race. Thank you for your support.
