The Silvan area of the Dandenongs is quite simply a magnificent part of the world and Race 3 is often the highlight of the series for many runners (despite being the hardest races).
We are excitied to announce that the Silvan race will also include a new 2.2km KIDS RUN to let our little champions experience the fun of trail running as well!
When: Sunday 6th August 2017
Where: The Silvan Reservoir Park, Dandenong Ranges
Long Course: 21km
Medium Course: 15.5km
Short Course: 7.2km
NEW Kids Run: 2.2km
You’ll race along trails that wind through mighty Mountain Ash that seemingly reach to the sky overhead, you’ll run past lush tree ferns and gullies of verdant undergrowth all in the friendly company of the local birdlife, including crimson rosellas, kookaburras and the superb lyrebird.
It’s the toughest (but most rewarding) of the series with all courses being a few kms longer and noticeably hillier in comparison to Races 1 and 2. The trails are still non-technical and runners of all backgrounds will return with smiles from ear to ear - but - prepare yourself for a challenge because these are tough races!
So make sure you join us for Race 3 at Silvan as we step it up, up, up a notch with a challenging but oh-so-rewarding run in a beautiful part of the world!
NEW Kids Run - We love seeing active kids and involving them in all the fun so we've added a kids run as part of the Race 3 event. More details on the website.
