About the Trail Series

The series has been created to encourage both beginner and experienced trail runners to challenge themselves over accessible and runner-friendly looped courses.

The idea is for runners to build their fitness and experience with a view to getting the best out of themselves at the SA Trail Championships in April 2016.

Runners will be awarded points (system to be announced soon) which accumulate the more races the runners compete in. These points go towards a male and female series champion.

While the needs of all levels of runners will be catered to, the emphasis of this series, in keeping with Yumigo! philosophy, is on participation and self-progression.

More details will be posted soon but in the meantime, any questions can be directed to Race Director Ben Hockings via email.
 

 

 

 

 

The mission of Yumigo! is to promote physical activity and
the diversity of the South Australian landscape.
