Sat 29 Nov AFTERGLOW TWILIGHT-NIGHT TRAIL HALF MARATHON (VIC)
Australia's only night time trail half marathon! Held on the Surf Coast, an hour south west of Melbourne, Victoria, Afterglow starts out in the twilight glow of the final days of Spring, treading into the Surf Coast's Ironbark forest and quickly into the pitch of night, taking on the darkness with trails lit only by headlamps (and glow sticks). The unique event will finish with a carnival-like atmosphere with live retro music including a saxophonist playing on course, drummers on course, a DJ at the finish and 'glow-themed' entertainers. Afterglow is also being held in support of beyondblue, a not-for-profit organisation that tackles the issues of depression and anxiety.Runners are being encouraged to wear anything that glows or is fluoro - or just bright and bad taste in general - in the spirit of the event's name, and also with reference to a charitable aim of shining a light on issues relating to depression and anxiety.  contact: Chris Ord. email: chris@tourdetrails.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.

The event offers opportunities for solo runners and relay teams. With time frames of 3hrs and 6hrs to choose from.

?? WOODFORD DAM 19KM (TO BE CONFIRMED) (NSW)
The trails around Woodford Dam have been virtually unknown to the public, being locked away as Catchment land beyond public access for many decades until a few years ago. When the Sydney Catchment Authority opened these areas to the public, word spread slowly through the local running and mountain biking community. Steep trails through quiet valleys appealed as a perfect venue for the Running Wild series.The course mixed in hills and water- following the edge of the dam and passing several quiet waterfalls with four big hills and corresponding downhills. contact: Running Wild. email: runningwildnsw@gmail.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.

Sun 26 Apr MT SOLITARY ULTRA- 45KM (NSW)
This course is spectacular, quite often regarded as the must do multi day hike in the Blue Mountains, however we think it's better to do it in a day!!! It has all the facets of what trail running is about - fast downhill fire/single trail, gnarly uphill, stairs, rolling single trail, creek/river crossings, rock clambering and diverse flora. From Mt Solitary itself the vista includes areas of Lake Burrogarang, through to the Southern Highlands, Kanagra Boyd and The 'Wild Dog Mountains'. The course also encompasses significant historical culturally significant areas of the Gundungurra Nation.  contact: Running Wild. email: runningwildnsw@gmail.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
