The Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team offers a 4-event series of Winter trail runs at popular venues close to Canberra – west, south and north – for your enjoyment, fitness and self-transcendence.
Race 2: 1 June
"Stromlo Strides" 2km, 7km & 16km
The second race of the Series increases the distances and moves to Canberra's all-purpose world-class Stromlo Forest Park – like Canberra itself, the perfect blend of natural beauty with man-made ingenuity. The "Novice" course follows the purpose-built "Deek's Track" cross-country running course; the moderate-grade 7km course ventures out to the majestic Blue Gums; while the longer 16km route ascends the summit of the Mt Stromlo before rambling a loop around the shoulder of the mountain.
Note this race is held on the Reconciliation Day Public Holiday in the ACT – Monday 1 June.
Park at the Stromlo Forest Park car park at the end of Dave McInnes Drive. On-the-day registration opens at 9AM at the pavilion and closes at 9.45AM, with races starting from 10AM.
