Mt Macedon remains a mystery, so often blanketed in an eerie fog, visibility on the trails can often be short. But the memories gained here are long and the trails are varied, challenging and rewarding.
Macedon Trail Run is the 2nd in the Trailsplus Mountain Trail Series. It offers incredibly beautiful scenic mountain trails with challenging ascents and descents. The start and finish are located at the BBQ area next to the carpark at the top of the mountain. This is an ideal place for families to enjoy a picnic lunch while waiting for their competitor to finish, and to linger afterwards to encourage other finishers and for the presentations.

The Macedon Ranges form the southern end of Victoria’s Great Dividing Range and feature a diverse range of natural and cultural features. The Macedon Regional Park protects forested land along the ridge of the range and offers great opportunities for bushwalking, scenic drives and picnics.
Mount Macedon is one of the highest peaks in the range and you can enjoy magnificent views from the Mount Macedon Memorial Cross and the Camels Hump viewing platforms.
All Trailsplus events donate $1 for each participant to CanTeen, the Australian organisation for Young people Living with cancer.
UPDATE: In 2019, there were 421 race entries and online personal donations of $82. So Trailsplus has donated a total of $503 to Canteen from the Macedon race.
On June 30th 2019 we surpassed donations of $50,000 to CanTeen. Massive thanks to our runners, volunteers and supporters.
