Click GO the Shears 3/6/12km Trail Run Event

  • Eynesbury Homstead Eynesbury Road Eynesbury, VIC, 3338 Australia (map)

Overview:

Travelling back through time to early Australia in the 1860's
Event 1 of the Big V Trail Series is "Click GO the shears" Eynesbury

The Big V Trail Series is the perfect community and family introduction to those who may not have previously experienced the newly popular sport of trail running. 

Runners and families will really feel they have been transported back in time as they pass buildings built pre 1870's with homesteads, shearing sheds, staff quarters and stables on course. Only a 40 min drive from the Melbourne CBD. 

Distances of 3/6/12 km have been selected and a progression in difficulty as the series goes on will provide a pathway to have you enjoying your trails and not being scared off.

We have decided to start the series with 1 X 3km, 1X6km, 2X6km loops with an aid station at the 3km mark of the 6km loop and the start / finish area. Meaning you can start our series with basically a pair of road shoes.

Start times will allow for 12 km finishers to also do a timed complimentary 3 km with family and friends. A great chance for the kids to show you their#traillove.
