In 2023, this is the 2nd of 5 races in the Trailsplus Mountain Trail series.
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 mountain series, come and find out what they are all about and why so many runners choose to enter all five of them.
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.
