Please read the brief carefully if you are a competitor.

Sit on top of a mountain and take in the breath-taking views of fire works from Melbourne to Geelong waterfront and the Ballerine Peninsula.  What better way to spend New Years Eve?? Throw in a run before hand to top off a perfect summers evening celebration.

Part of a series designed to introduce people to night running, competitors enjoy a safe and supported 5km loop race under headtorch.  The shorter distances are completed before sunset, with the 21k, 42k and 50k pushing into the night.

Come and join us to relax after another tough year and welcome in the new year. Bring your picnic rug and deck chairs, some fine food and wine and we’ll provide the coffee and exercise.
