The Salomon Warburton Trail Fest is excited to announce a few additions to the line up of the Fest this 9, 10, 11 March, in addition to all the awesome running scheduled!

THE PLOGGING CONTEST? HOW TO WIN…

Well, here’s the thing… Salomon and Suunto have recognised that having clean trails to run on makes for a better environment, better stewardship of our wilderness areas and of course better running. So they are getting behind the ‘plogging’ movement, where trail runners (and everybody) get out on trails for sessions of picking up any litter along your fave trail place. 

So, between now and March 1st, go ‘plogging’, take a picture of you in action, being a hero steward of single track, and you could WIN: a 3-DAY PASS to Warby Trail Fest (reimbursed if you’ve already purchased your entry), a new Suunto 9 watch for ultra running (RRP$900) and a new pair of Salomon Trail Running Shoes (RRP$250)

Steps to enter: 

  • Go plogging and take a photo of you doing so. Post your photo to FB or Instagram and tag @Suunto #WarbyTrailFest #WTF #plogging PLUS email your image to chris@tourdetrails.com so we know you have entered. Bonus points if you are plogging in the #WarburtonValley on trail used by the Fest!

  • a Team Salomon Q&A

  • a ‘running and wellness seminar’, hosted by young gun, Simone Brick (right, on cover of Trail Run Mag), who has battled mental health issues and used running and nature to assist her journey to being one of Australia’s top trail runners

  • Plogging event at the Fest, where you will go for a short, non-timed run and pick up trash. Check out the Australian plogging community HERE.

There’s plenty more going on at the Festival, so ENTER TODAY.
