Sat 15 Nov NARROWNECK NIGHT RUN 20KM & 14KM (NSW)
The Narrowneck Run is both splendidly scenic and refreshingly straightforward. From the main gate runners follow the only fire trail right out to its terminus at Clear Hill, then return. There are no significant junctions or deviations. There are no biting hills on Narrowneck as there were at, say, Mt Portal or Woodford Dam, but the track does roll with plenty of sharp ups and downs and on the return leg the gradual ascent from Clear Hill to the fire tower does take nearly three kilometres. The full option is an even 20 kilometres, a shorter option involves turning at the fire tower which makes a 14 kilometre run. Narrowneck is a long, cliff-bound peninsula which divides the Jamison Valley from the Megalong Valley. As you head out, on your left is near-pristine bush framed by the Warragamba Catchment; on your right is cultivated farmland with Jenolan and Kanangra on the far western horizon. At the turnaround views of Lake Burragorang (Warragamba Dam) are quite clear and the Wild Dog Mountains are arrayed below you. contact: Running Wild. email: runningwildnsw@gmail.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.

Mon 26 Jan KNAPSACK LAP RACE - 3HR/6HR (NSW)
We are celebrating Australia Day this year with a bush run with a difference. A 5km loop course around Knapsack Park, Glenbrook. The course has a mixture of single track, fire trail, descents, climbs and two lookouts. Solo runners, pairs relays and teams relays of up to four categories are available to suit all runners. Get a bunch of mates together and come up and make a day of it. Have a run and then sit back, enjoy the company, have a cold drink and watch others do the running. Starting out of the leafy surrounds of sleepy Knapsack Oval and taking in the sights of this largely unknown running reserve (well Mtb I suppose officially). The Knapsack Lap Race will provide single track, open fire trail, ridge lines, gully�s and tremendous views from the Marge�s and Elizabeth Lookouts. All in a tidy 5km circuit. The event offers opportunities for solo runners and relay teams. With time frames of 3hrs and 6hrs to choose from. Run as many or as few laps as you want, but most importantly don�t miss the most enjoyable Australia Day event going round in running circles (literally).  contact: Running Wild. email: runningwildnsw@gmail.com. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
