The Trail Running Series - Race 5 (Night Run)The Trail Running Series takes your running off-road with a series of popular races at breath-taking wilderness locations within a 1hr drive from Melbourne.

Each of the five events in The Series includes a short, medium and long course race that gives you plenty of carefree, smile-inducing running through some magnificent natural landscapes.

You will run through valleys lined with tree ferns, weave through towering gum trees and sweep along flowing trails beside rivers, creeks, beaches and lookouts.

The Race 5 night race returns in 2019 as the finale! A fantastic night race around the Yarra Trails race in Kew followed by a massive post event party at Yarra Bend Park immediately afterwards.

This is an INCREDIBLE RACE EXPERIENCE as all runners light up the trail with your own (head) torch and weave along the flowing, non-technical trails in a long line of light.

This unique trail running event was the first of its kind in Australia in 2016 with the entire race being held after dark – making it an incredible race experience for everyone. The courses will be the exact same as those used in race 1 from previous years giving you some familiarity but you will be amazed at just how different they feel when you’re vision is restricted to the cone of light emanating from the front of your torch.
