Thursday 31st Dec 2020

5km – 10km – 21km – 42km – 50km – 6hr

The New Years Eve trail run has been registered with the Department of Jobs Precincts and Regions (DJPR) as a Tier 3 Covid Safe public event.

COVID Event Checklist


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. (Well…maybe not official fireworks in 2020, but still a great view!) 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 celebrate the year past and welcome in the new one. Bring your picnic rug and deck chairs, some fine food and wine and we’ll provide the coffee and exercise.
