The Next Gig

Trail Slider

The Salomon Trail Running Series takes your running off-road, along beautiful trails through stunning wilderness, with plenty of fresh air, friendly people and a welcoming race atmosphere for everyone.

The Series includes short, medium and long course races all within a 1hr drive of Melbourne. Each race will take you to some magnificent landscapes with your running shoes on your feet and a smile on your face. You’ll breathe in plenty of fresh air, you’ll run through fern-fringed valleys, weave through towering gum trees and sweep along flowing trails beside rivers, creeks, beaches and lookouts.

I look forward to seeing you in 2015.

Some may find my choice of events ‘vanilla’, some may find them total madness.  We’re all different.  The constant is to seek out whatever rocks you and shake it violently until it submits. No matter what an event objective is I will drag my bleeding corpse across ANY finish line. Pain is temporary. Death before DNF. Blah, blah, blah….just get on with it!

 Here is a bit of a list of what adventures have been had…done and dusted…
