Course Details
Anglesea’s setting provides for a diverse trail running experience that will really set it apart from the other races in the The Trail Running Series presented by The North Face due to the coastal, bush and undulating landscape. All races start on the crisp white sand of the Anglesea Main Beach before runners climb away from the coast along a healthy mixture of single tracks and double tracks that sweep through the coastal bushland like the local King Parrot flying through the forest.

The final descent down the Surf Coast Walk trail provides spectacular views across the clifftops to nearby Point Roadknight and further down the coast to Aireys Inlet, Lorne and beyond and will put a smile on your face for the beautiful places trail running has taken you.

Whilst the three races are the longest of the series, consensus is that they are not the hardest of the series due to smaller hills (compared to Silvan) and the undulating flow they capture through the bushland.

We are also thrilled to see the return of the KIDS RUN on Sunday (now in its’ 4th year!) as part of the weekend’s activities – designed for kids aged up to 10yrs this is a great way to get involved when you’re young!

Spectators
Unfortunately (for spectators) the runners in the most part do not come past the start / finish area during their races. The long course runners start with a short out and back on the beach that will be good to watch but otherwise they complete a loop to the east of the township, so unless you walk along the trails yourself (which is pretty easy to do) spectators will not see the runners until they finish.

So the best place to head whilst waiting for runners is one of the numerous nearby cafes across the road at the shops.

Alternately, you can go for a walk past the Surf Life Saving Club and up a section of the Surf Coast Walk to a beautiful lookout over the bay and surrounding coastline all within 1km of the start area. Or just hang out on the Anglesea beach.
