So you have the choice of either 11.1 km or 21.1 km on Saturday afternoon and three choices on Sunday morning of 10km, half or full marathon.  So you can make your own 'Doubleup option' and for every runner who does a Saturday afternoon trail run and Sunday morning run we will give you a bottle of local wine or Plenty Oil or a big bag of peanuts! 

To be eligible for this please select the forest run first and then select your Sunday event option

 Doubler gifts will be handed out at bib pickup.  

Our rail trail has gentle gradients and a bitumen surface and we offer options for everyone: from a 1km dash for cash, 2 km family fun run, an all abilites event, or a 10 km, half marathon or full marathon. Also our 11. 1 km or 21.1 km forest trail runs are through the picturesque McEuen forest. This is a more challenging and undulating trail and very beautiful.

All race start/ finish locations are on the rail trail behind the Wondai Town Hall.
