Welcome to race 3 of the Trailsplus Urban Trail Running Series.
This Tan Ultra urban park trail run is held on the popular TAN walking and running track around the Melbourne botanic gardens. This beautiful part of our garden city is a great place for spectators to enjoy a morning around the gardens, the Myer Music Bowl and along the Yarra River.
Across the road, by the river are BBQ facilities for those who would like to enjoy a picnic.
We hope you will come and join us either as a participant or as a spectator encouraging all as they strive to achieve their goals, be it 4, 12, 21, 42, 50 or 100 km, or one of the new 6hr or 12hr events.
Or if you would like to help out on the day please let us know. We are very grateful for the help of our volunteers.
Please read the brief carefully if you are a competitor.
