The TRAILBLAZER trail run takes place at the You Yangs National Park, taking
participants off road on both trails and emergency vehicle tracks. There are two courses of 10km and 7km that are challenging but achievable to all with a reasonable level of fitness.
Date: Sunday September 17, 2017
Distances: 10km and 7km and the all new 4.5km
Venue: You Yangs Regional Park (main Entrance)
ARE THERE HUGE HILLS?
There are some undulations to challenge you in the 7km and 10km courses, but the course does not go any higher that the turntable car park.
The 4.5km course is designed for the beginner and remains relatively flat.
ARE THE COURSES SAFE?
Although you may feel like you are in the middle of the bush for most of the courses, at no time are you more than 100m from vehicle access. We will have many marshals out on course as well as directional arrows at all changes in direction. There will also be mobile first aid units on course as well as at the finsh line.
CAN I WALK?
Walkers are welcome to take part in the shorter course events, however the longer course events are for those who will jog or run the majority of the course.
