The You Yangs Trail Running Festival has been rescheduled to…

4th – 5th DECEMBER 2021

… replacing the proposed new Ciderthon event.  All registrations will be automatically transferred to the new date.

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

2021 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.

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.

Other great runs in the You Yangs:

Halloween Howler

New Years Eve Rock Around the Clock

 

Please read the brief carefully if you are a competitor.

**Trailsplus uses the Humanitix Ticketing System.  This is an awesome ticketing platform run by a not-for-profit organisation that donates 100% of the profits from booking fees to a humanitarian cause as chosen by Trailsplus.  For this race, the donation will go towards a better start for disadvantaged Indigenous students.

Trailsplus DOES NOT mail out bibs. Bib collection is on the morning of the race.

All Trailsplus events donate $1 for each participant 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.
