People running uphill during the Tolosa Half

We’ve wanted to come to Knocklofty for years, and we’re finally here! We reckon these courses are so good, we’re giving you the chance to run them twice in one day! We’ll be holding twilight runs (starting at 5pm) before we’ll do it all again as night runs (starting at 7pm)!

Knocklofty is the hill that West Hobart sits on, and it is home to an incredible network of bush trails that are the closest to the CBD. It’s a favourite training ground for many of Hobart’s trail runners.

The Knockers courses (both Enduro and Sport) include a beautiful mix of wide, smooth firetrail and well-built single tracks, with and a little bit of technical running for good measure! There are heaps of awesome views of kunanyi and timtumili minanya/Derwent River and Hobart.

Knockers Sport is a shorter route (4km) but it still packs a punch with some hills, smooth fire trail and those great single tracks. We’ve also got permission to run on the Yellow Hippo Track, which will be closed to mountain bikes during the event.

While the twilight and night courses (for both the Enduro and Sport events) are physically the same, you’ll have quite different experiences on them both! At night, while you can still feel the presence of the mountain, you’ll also see the twinkling lights of the city and suburbs for most of the run. It’s a pretty amazing experience, given you’re in some beautiful Tassie bush!

Do the double (Twilight and Night runs) and you’ll get 50% off the night run entry!
