There are two races over this course - one at 9:30 and The Body Positive Stomp (for people just wanting to have a crack and not race) at 9:45.

This one is classic Warburton: groomed single track (check image below), some little lumps and bumps and swoops to keep this interesting, but a sensational loop run that skirts the Yarra River all the way! A great ...

Terror? Ahhh sheesh it's not that bad. Except for that 'wall' that shoots up to the summit. How the hell did the bulldozer drag its arse straight up something that steep? Whoaaaa! Ouch. But now you're at the top, it's a doddle. Sort of. Loop around and then back down the 'Backstairs Track' you ran up on the way here. Join up with a nice flat stretch of the W...Read More

So this run is a fun, fast and flowy one, put on for those who don't want to murder their legs on the Donna Double or have a fear of leeches. Like the Donna Double and the Redwood Rush, it leaves the Footy Oval, meanders alongside the Yarra River and then punches you up the Southern Hemisphere's steepest residential street (others claim it, too, but whatever...Read More

So, here it is, yes a vertical kilometre (lower case V & K... we're not looking for any official Skyrun accreditation here, what we are saying is that you rise a vertical kilometre when you run this one. In only 8km. It's just maths). The total distance up to the top of Donna is 11km, but you ping the 1000m vertical mark at 8km. Then you punch through some s...Read More

This one's a blast. A fast blast. So if you're not up for the ultra distance and don't want to be hit by too many hills, this is your beast. It's based on the mostly flat O'Shannassy Aqueduct Trail, which scoots along the northern flank of the Warburton Valley, an old access trail for the aqueduct that used to be the delivery channel for much of water in Mel...Read More

The tourism bods call the trail the "Walk Into History" due to its heritage as an old lumberjack's route the linked Warburton and the mountainous logging forests between Big Pats Creek and Powelltown to the south. But bugger walking... we'll call it the "Run Into History" instead! Actually, we'll call it the Lumberjack Run in honour of wild tales of wild log...Read More
