Princes Park Urban Trail Run

4th July 2021

2.5km – 5km – 10km – 21km – 42km – 50km – 100km

6hr – 12hr

Princes Park is only a short tram ride from the centre of the Melbourne business district. It is a 2km long narrow stretch of parkland catering for a wide range of sports, including cricket, tennis and lawn bowls, and is home to the Carlton Football and Cricket Club.

This is a great run for family, supporters and spectators, with a 2.5km loop you have plenty of opportunity to encourage and cheer your runner. And what a great place to play while you’re waiting!

In 2020 this event will be on Sunday only.  If you want to run the 6hr or 12hr, make sure you register early. If numbers are low, they will be merged with the 50km and 100km respectively.
