The Courses

Race 1: Usually held on the nearest Saturday to Halloween

The Halloween Howler is held in the 'Western Horse Paddocks' section of the You Yangs Regional Park, just off Sandy Creek Rd. It's a flat, fast course that winds its way among the grey gums and wider perimeter access trails. Be prepared for some trick or treating and a little spooking as you make your way through the woods under head torch.

Race 2: Always on New Years Eve

The Rock Around the Clock is held out of the Turn-Table car park. The loop  circumnavigates Flinders Peak. Enjoy the views and don't trip over while you're watching the fireworks over the city of Melbourne and Geelong. The loop is rolling with some steep climbs and descents, some wide-open fire trail and some narrow single track trail. Rock in the New Year on the biggest rock on the western plain. What more appropriate way for ultra runners to celebrate New Years Eve than running all night!

Race 3: currently on holidays, may return as as a different event soon

The Australia Day Midnight Rambler is a perfect way for runners and trail lovers to celebrate our national day. (Note that the event will be held on the Saturday evening and not exactly on Australia Day.) The course is set in slightly undulating winding single trails. Runners get to see fellow competitors through the trees only meters away.
