Bendigo to host new trail run festival

October 11, 2017

In2Adventure have announced the launch of a trail run festival that aims to challenge and inspire Australia’s trail running fraternity hosted in Victoria’s historic goldfields region.

The Bendigo Trail Run Festival, will be hosted in conjunction with TreX Cross Triathlon Series, Australia’s national cross triathlon series which includes seven events across the nation.

Supported by the City of Greater Bendigo Council, the Victorian round of the series will play host to the Victorian state cross triathlon championships and the aquathlon world championship qualifier.

The event is hosted by In2Adventure, the team who brought the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships to Australia in 2016 and have been hosting specialist off road and adventure events throughout Australia for over 10 years.

Race Director Simon Lazenby sees the launch of this new trail run festival in Bendigo as “a significant and exciting addition to an action-packed calendar of off road trail events in 2017/18.”

The Bendigo Trail Run Festival aims to showcase some of the region’s hidden treasures including the Crusoe Reservoir and Bendigo Regional Park. Lazenby sees these site as not only idyllic locations for an expansive open water swim alongside thrilling mountain bike trails, but also as offering an eclectic mix of trails and terrain set to delight Australia’s trail running fraternity.

Lazenby adds “Bendigo is often seen as a contemporary regional centre, however, what most people don’t realise is that it is a real hidden treasure when it comes to action packed activities such as open water swimming, mountain biking and trail running.”

The Bendigo Trail Run Festival is launched off the back of the highly successful Tomaree Trail Run Festival in Port Stephens and the weekend schedule will offer the same wide range of events for all ages and abilities including the trail run half marathon, 11 kilometre, 6 kilometre and Kids Mud Rats along with the Standard, Sprint, Junior, Teaser and Dirt Kids triathlon events plus a duathlon and aquabike and Aquathlon festival on Saturday afternoon.

The Bendigo Trail Run Festival will take place on Sunday 26th November following the TreX Cross Triathlon Festival on Saturday 25th November.

It offers a selection of courses including half marathon, 11 kilometre, 5 kilometre distances along with a free Kids Mud Rats run.
