Australia set to host a thrilling new trail run series as In2Adventure announce the launch of Trail Run Australia in 2018
AUSTRALIA | In2Adventure, the team who have been hosting specialist off road events in Australia for over twelve years have today announced the launch of an all new trail running series in Australia with the announcement of Trail Run Australia.
In2Adventure are inviting runners to #GetDirtyDownUnder as Trail Run Australia takes runners to some of the most iconic and stunning destinations in the land down under.
From stunning beaches, to historic goldfields, remote rocky outcrops and rich rainforests, all the way to Australia’s high country, the 2018/19 series is set to host festivals in four of Australia’s most spectacular destinations including:
- Port Stephens, NSW;
- Sunshine Coast, Qld;
- Bendigo Goldfields, Vic; and
- Snowy Mountains, NSW
Trail Run Australia will challenge participants to get off road and take on a challenge against mother nature in some of the most demanding and diverse terrain that the country has to offer. It inspires runners to tread the path less travelled in this wild and beautiful land.
Robyn Lazenby, event director at In2Adventure, the team who won the successful bid to bring the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships to Australia in 2016 told us:
“We are so excited to launch this new series in Australia. We ran a number of trial events in 2017/18 and based on their success with sell out events, we have taken the decision to bring the four events into one Australian Series with a series championship up for grabs.
We have been so very lucky to host events in some of the most stunning destinations in Australia. Each location offers its own unique experience in terms of terrain, scenery and experiences where runners can discover the very best Australia has to offer.
To open these spectacular locations up to the trail running fraternity is a thrilling dream come true for us.”
Trail Run Australia is a series for all ages and abilities. All you need is a desire to pull on a pair of running shoes and get off road in a challenge against yourself and mother nature.
All festivals include a:
- Half Marathon;
- 5-6km; and

The series culminates in Australia’s iconic Snowy Mountains in New South Wales with a 50km Ultra included the festival.
