WTRuns = Waterfall Trail Runs

Sunday 12th August 2018

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 will be kept to a minimum for affordability. No event t-shirts, but there will be a sausage in a sandwich at the finish and some 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.

All runners are to carry some sort of water container/bottle as the drink stations will be cup free.

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