We’re bringing back a truly classic trail run on some very runnable trails, with the Organ Pipes Classic! We’re also introducing the 6km (Sport) run, alongside the original Organ Pipes Classic 14km (Enduro), and both take you right under kunanyi’s iconic Organ Pipes. Born in the era of Gondwana, those iconic pillars of dolerite are synonymous with kunanyi, and a brilliant companion for your run.

There’s plenty of cruisy, downhill single trails, mesmerising forests and selfie-worthy views! These are the most accessible runs in our Series and perfect for those new(er) to trail running.

Organ Pipes Classic (Enduro): You’ll start this 13km run out likely gazing left and right in awe! There are some incredible views here along the beautiful Organ Pipes track which is very runnable. But then the climb comes early on in this course – only those blessed with the genes of a mountain goat will avoid at least some power-walking up the Pinnacle Track. (Remember, the best kept secret of trail running is that you don’t run uphill!).You’ll then enjoy some downhill on Old Hobartians Track and cross multi-tiered New Town Falls. You’ll run past historic huts through Junction Cabin, and along some flat, runnable sections of the Lenah Valley Track, which feature more incredible views, before you make it to the finish at Lost Freight Cafe at The Springs. Note: We’ve reversed this course from its previous runnings, so you’re now finishing at Lost Freight at the Springs!

Organ Pipes Classic (Sport): This course follows much of the same trails as the longer Enduro, so you’ll also start this 6km run out likely gazing left and right in awe! There are some incredible views here along the beautiful Organ Pipes track which is very runnable. There’s then the climb up Pinnacle Track, but remember, the best kept secret of trail running is that you don’t run uphill The Sport runners then come down Sawmill Track, and along some flat, runnable sections of the Lenah Valley Track, which feature more incredible views, before you make it to the finish at Lost Freight Cafe at The Springs.
