Race 2 of the Midnight Madness Trail Series wil be conducted at the You Yangs Regional Park Little River. The series consists of 3 proposed races, Halloween Howler, New Years Rock around the Clock and Australia Day Midnight Rambler. Each race is to be entered individually. Each additional race will open for entry on completion of the previous event. A perfect location for the beginner trail runner, yet challenging and testing for the more experienced with several distances on offer.
A Simple Formula for fun on the trails
The races are organised almost like all other trailsplus events
But we want to focus even more on that fun relaxed party type feel, so bring the rug and some nibbles and drinks. The course is a 5km loop, a combination of downhill single track and rolling management trails, with the odd challenging and rewarding climb and better decent with views. There will be visible fireworks all aorund the bay from Melbourne to Geelong.
What should you bring
If running at night you must have a head torch with spare batteries,
You should come dressed for the weather, Hot or Cold and have a change of clothes available
As always Volunteers are the key to successful events.
If you would like to help out on the day please let us know. We would love to have you helping as a volunteer.
All Trailsplus events donate $1 of each participant's race entry fee to CanTeen, the Australian organisation for Young people Living with cancer. You can choose to donate a little extra during the entry process if you would like too.
Our events are small
We like that, especially our night runs, if you dont often get to podium this could be your moment in the sun or under the moon as it may be.
