100% Pure Trail Running in the Otways

Run Forrest Trail Run is the most standout, spectacularly picturesque event on the Victorian trail running calendar.  Set in the beautiful little Otway Ranges town of Forrest we offer runners the following distances –  21km, 10km & 6km events.

The 21km trail run tracks around the sublime Lake Elizabeth, whilst the 10km and 6km showcase the Otway’s subtropical landscape.

The course is a rollercoaster of ups and downs, narrow trails (usually for Mt bikers) under an umbrella of tree ferns and enormous of gums.

The village is a misty winter wonderland with little fire pits, delicious food trucks set on the banks of the West Barwon River.  The community of Forrest are a welcoming bunch & you will love their warm hospitality, great brews and  hearty fare.
