WTRuns = Waterfall Trail Runs

Sunday 11th August 2019

                                                          Results for 2018 can be found on RaceSplitter

The Waterfall Trail Runs are made up of 4 different trail run options on 2 different circuits that start & finish at The Numinbah Community Hall, Nerang - Murwillumbah Road, Numinbah Valley. Competitors will have the option of competing in a 50km, 33km or 17km individual runs or a 6km team relay style trail running events.

The event prices have been kept to a minimum with a sausage in a sandwich at the finish and lots of great prizes to be won.

We will also have a coffee van there early in the morning.

You will be guaranteed a great trail run and fun day as these runs will have a little twist. All runners must pick up a compulsory item along the way, and bring it back with you to the finish.

Use these events to have fun (especially with the relay) to challenge your trail running ability or to train for your next big event.
