Inaugural Mt Worth Trail Run – Sunday July 22nd
Starts 8.30 am for senior events – 11 am for junior/family events
This event is hosted by the Friends of Mt Worth State Park and raises funds to help us maintain the Park for all to enjoy.
In many ways, this is the perfect event for all runners with a mixture of distances. For road runners, it offers the first taste for the trail, without being too intimidating as a relatively non-technical, non-remote, non-mountainous trail. For experienced trailites, the route still features stunning wilderness with forest viewpoints you won’t believe (and becomes a truly go-fast course with plenty of good twists and turns)
The run is offered in several options, with each entry fee being a donation to the Friends of Mt Worth State Park.
A 21k trail running most of the trails in the Park over some challenging hills and through the beautiful wet forest then to the top of a ridge overlooking Warragul, out to the Baw Baw Plateau and the Latrobe Valley;
A 15k trail through the same environment without the final ridge section;
A 6k trail up the ridge overlooking the Valley;
A 2k Kids run for those up to 15. (Under 10’s must run with a parent/guardian)
A coffee van and ice cream van, Lions sausage sizzle and other foodie options will make the event a fun family day.
