A series of trail running events
on the iconic kunanyi

kunanyi Trail Series

From alpine heaths and dolerite cliffs to dry peppermint forests and buttongrass moorland, kunanyi is home to diverse and captivating wilderness. 

Immerse yourself in nature as you take on one (or all) of our carefully selected trail runs. Spanning four events across 2022, the kunanyi Trail Series offers a different kind of run – one where you breathe in the eucalypts and hear your own heartbeat in the calming quiet. 

More technical than a road run, the Trail Series is the opportunity for new adventure. At each event, choose from the longer Enduro Run or the shorter Sport run. Both distances are great runs in their own right. The sport run is fantastic if you’d prefer to run a shorter distance, or if you’re dipping your toes into trail running for the first time.

Embrace the wilderness. Run wild.  

What’s new for 2022

– Shorter runs by popular demand (with the introduction of our “Enduro” and “Sport” categories)
– BBQs and other activities at the Event Hub where you can hang out until all runners return for presentations
– Sign up to all four events in our new season passes (and score yourself an exclusive gift)
– Three of your favourite runs return while we introduce the brand new Cascade Slide.
