Welcome to the 3rd race in the Trailsplus Mountain Trail series.

2020 will see the 12th annual Trail Running Festival at the You Yangs. The You Yangs course is always a beautiful run through varying terrain, from flat wooded bike trails to open rocky mountain trails. There are some great views from Flinders Peak across Port Philip Bay, if you have the time and energy to take them in after the steep ascent!!

If you haven’t entered the previous 2 races, come and find out what they are all about and why so many runners choose to enter all four of them.

Parks Vic provide great picnic facilities at the Turntable carpark, where the race starts and finishes, so it’s a perfect location for families and friends to support their athletes.

The course takes a series of loops from the carpark out into different areas of the park, always returning to the carpark. This makes it a great race for  supporters who see their runner several times during the race.

All Trailsplus events donate $1 of each participant’s race entry fee to CanTeen, the Australian organisation for Young people Living with cancer.

UPDATE: In 2019, competitors donated $165 and we had 564 race entries.  So Trailsplus has donated a total of $729 to Canteen for the You Yangs Running Festival.

On June 30th 2019 we surpassed donations of $50,000 to CanTeen. Massive thanks to our runners, volunteers and supporters.
