The Big V Trail Series in its second year is the brainchild of TrailLove Global Events (Bellarine Sunset Run) for the Victorian Running Network and proudly supported by Athletics Victoria. Running events once a month from February through April this series has been introduced to provide runners of all levels and abilities accessible trails with destinations suitable for a fun family day out. A defined pathway has been a focus to enable people to progress from running their first one km or two on pavement to enjoying the beautiful unsealed beauty experienced in cross country and trail running.
You will have 3 themed events all held within 45 minutes drive from the Melbourne CBD offering distances of 3 km / 6-7 km / 12-14 km and creatively scheduled to maximise family participation. The 3 km distance is included specifically to tempt the parkrun enthusiasts with it being identified as the perfect entry level to trails after all 5 km parkrun is still a long way when first starting out. It is also our belief a maximum effort over these distances is every bit as challenging and rewarding as the traditional longer distances.
Once again we will host the Athletics Victoria State Trail Championships as part of the series doubling as the Men's & Women's Victorian 10 Mile Cross Country Chamionships at Lysterfield.
