The Silvan area of the Dandenongs is quite simply a magnificent part of the world – and this race is often the highlight of the series for many runners (despite being the hardest!).
The 1.7km Kids Run at Silvan is also a highlight as we see our little champions experience the fun of trail running in a beautiful location.
Long Course: 20.5km
Medium Course: 15.5km
Short Course: 8.2km
Kids Run: 1.7km
You’ll race along trails that wind through mighty Mountain Ash that seemingly reach to the sky overhead, you’ll run past lush tree ferns and gullies of verdant undergrowth all in the friendly company of the local birdlife, including crimson rosellas, kookaburras and the superb lyrebird.It’s the toughest (but most rewarding) of the series with all courses being a few kms longer and noticeably hillier in comparison to the other races in the Series. The trails are still non-technical and runners of all backgrounds will return with smiles from ear to ear – but – prepare yourself for a challenge because these are tough races!
So make sure you join us for our Silvan race as we step it up, up, up a notch with a challenging but oh-so-rewarding run in a beautiful part of the world! And have our Series Celebrations!
