Go for the ultra and run in the footsteps of legendary lumberjacks, test your quads with a double that takes you up Donna Buang and back down again...or maybe Little Joe's Night Terror is more to your liking, or hang it, go for everything and take on our Multiday Madness Challenge? Options, options. Whatever you choose bring your lilo, because trail running just got floaties...
THE LILO DERBY
YOU. A TRAIL. A RIVER.
A FLOATIE DEVICE.
Yes. Weird. Different. But true: trail running just got its first ever event where floaties are the fashion. It's fun, frivolous and for everyone. It's also mandatory for those in the Multiday Madness, of course. Yes, dress ups are allowed (encouraged, even). We've done this before as a stand alone event and the winner wore a tutu...
OFF TRAIL ENTERTAINMENT
A FILM. A SEMINAR. MUSE.
Details are still in the conjuring pot, but we are looking to fill the mountain town of Warburton with all manner of off-trail trail running goodness, including a presenter with pizazz who will help us all with our trail antics, plus a film that will concentrate on wilderness and wow us all... stay tuned for details...

Only an hour and a half drive from the Melbourne CBD, but a world away - ditch the concrete jungle for a fern fringed one and come and play in the Warburton Valley. There's plenty of running, but also a plethora of walking options, mountain biking, road and hill cycling, river recreation (paddling, swimming, liloing), camping, birdwatching, hang gliding (yes...), along with a bunch of tasty cafes and restaurants (yes, great coffee), galleries, and shopping. A weekend running getaway with the lot...
