Macedon Trail Run is the 2nd in the Trailsplus Mountain Trail Series. It offers incredibly beautiful scenic mountain trails with challenging ascents and descents. The start and finish are located at the BBQ area next to the carpark at the top of the mountain. This is an ideal place for families to enjoy a picnic lunch while waiting for their competitor to finish, and to hang around afterwards to encourage other finishers and for the presentations.
