The Run Forrest Trail Run presents runners with the opportunity to experience some of Australia's most picturesque trails.

The event, based in the charming hinterland township of Forrest, within the stunning Otway Ranges, offers three different distances – 6km, 10km, and 21km – to cater to various skill levels. The event also features the popular 6km Kids Run circuit.

Runners will traverse undulating hills, flowing rivers, and dense fern gullies, immersed in the fresh, cool air of the Otway Ranges.

The 21km Run Forrest Trail Run course begins at the Race Village, located on the banks of the Barwon River, with access from Hennigan Crescent in Forrest via a trail walk (note: there is no parking available at the Village).

The trail then meanders alongside the Barwon River and proceeds onto the renowned Red Carpet, a path loved by mountain bikers for its challenging technical segments, fern-covered single track, and rapid downhill turns. Runners will have the exclusive opportunity to navigate this dynamic course, which continues around the scenic surroundings of the majestic Lake Elizabeth.

The challenging course features tight, off-cambered turns, fast downhill sections, and undulating terrain, providing plenty of flow. This circuit concludes back at the Race Village on the Barwon River's banks.
