Running Wild

Enjoy running along rolling grassy slopes and sandy beaches and striding up gentle hills located between the cliffs overlooking the Southern Ocean and rolling green fields with cattle grazing contentedly.

This is definitely a run for the beginner trail runner, the roadrunner that is jaded and wants to get out there for the great scenery and great running and just wants to be re-invigorated by the great outdoors, as well as the experienced trail runner just wanting a great run.

Starting in the reserve adjacent to the caravan park, this delightful run takes in some picturesque coastline and deserted beaches on an out and back course. After the run, there is the opportunity for a quiet drink and lunch over at the Kilcunda Pub or General Store and then an opportunity to explore the rail trail or Wonthaggi Coal Mine.

Participants are asked to be considerate of and give way to walkers and other track users. Water and first aid will be available at the start /finish at Kilcunda and at Punchbowl Road. Runners are responsible for their own safety and assume full liability for their participation.

There will be a pre-race briefing taking place just prior to the start. Weather conditions could be hot and sunny. All runners should be prepared with water, sun hat and sunscreen.
