The Old Beechy Rail Trail is beautiful and challenging, with undulating terrain, exhilarating descents and on the part of the linear trail that has been chosen for this event, just one steep ascent.

The 16Km Run will take you from Barongarook, down hill through delightful cool bush to Birnam Station and the first drink station on the run, at the 6.3Km mark.

Conquer the hill, then traverse through undulating bush and pastoral landscape to Kawarren which is the 8 Km stage and another drink station.

Kawarren is also the start line for the 6 Km Walk/Run. 

Both runs will end at Rex Norman park in the delightful Otways village of Gellibrand. 

Numbers are limited so get your entry in early !

Enjoy the unlimited benefits of participating in a  healthy outdoor pursuit and raising money for local charities.
