The Thunderbolt Trail Race presented by Salisbury Lodges, runs through patches of untouched
forest in the Barrington Tops National Park. The course takes you winding past cascades, eucalyptus,
across and through subtropical delights of the scenic Williams River valley, while entering an
enchanting patch of ancient rainforest.
For those wanting an extra challenge, the course heads up the Corker Trail and it’s not called the Corker Trail for nothing!! This part of the course is a high altitude, high-octane adventure in the rugged mountain country. This challenging track follows the ridgeline from Lagoon Pinch picnic area to Carey’s Peak on the Barrington Plateau. We promise it won’t just be the scenery that takes your breath away. Winding through a variety of vegetation, from tall open woodlands to lush rainforest and cool temperate stands of Antarctic beech, your vigorous effort will be rewarded with brilliant views near Corker Mountain. After that, the expansive snow gum woodlands, grassy plains, and swamps of the Barrington Tops plateau will roll out before you.
The Thunderbolt Trail Race will start and finish within the grounds of Salisbury Lodges. Parking will be available on race day within the grounds of Salisbury Lodges. For those wishing to make a weekend out of the event, we have camping packages available at Salisbury Lodges, as part of our registration process.
