Trail Running Series #4 - Werribee Gorge

Going for a run through magnificent wilderness on a Sunday morning with a bunch of like minded souls sounds just about perfect – and that’s exactly what this series is all about!

The Trail Running Series is all about making trail running accessible to as many people as possible. You don’t need years of experience nor all the latest gear… all you need is a come-and-try-it attitude and a bit of fitness to get around the course. All races are designed to be fun, scenic and rewarding for all runners with a friendly event atmosphere that is truly welcoming of everyone.

Race 4 of the Trail Running Series 2021 heads to a spectacular new venue, The Werribee Gorge State Park just outside Bacchus Marsh, 1hr drive from Melbourne.

Werribee Gorge is a steep sided river valley with soaring cliffs, bold rocky outcrops and dense Aussie bushland split by the meandering waters of the Werribee River. The steep sided ravine is quite unlike any other race venue and looks more similar to the Gorges of the MacDonnell Ranges in central Australia than a Victorian regional park – we can’t wait to show it to you!

Werribee Gorge is located just off the Western Freeway, a short way past Bacchus March with the race centred at the scenic Meikles Picnic Area on the Werribee River.
