Thanks you to everyone who came out to Cleland Conservation Park. We had almost wintery weather ideal for trail running. The new course was a winner, and we had invaluable support not just from the runners but also the Juniors, all the friends and family who came out, our business supporters and of course our volunteers who make the event every time.
Provisional results are up at the link to the right (or further below if you are on a mobile device). For any timing-related enquiries please email Malcolm at firstname.lastname@example.org Results are provisional until Wednesday Jan 17.
Photos will be uploaded shortly to bluemelon.com/yumigo
Entries will open for our next event at O’Halloran Hill on Feb 18 this weekend, so keep an eye out!
ABOUT THE SUMMER TRAIL SERIES
Age group categories have now been reduced to five-year spans, and there is also an improved points-score system to reduce the number of drawn results at the end of the Series. And there will still be Long Course and Short Course Champions awarded at the end of the Series, as well as top-three age group awards. Plus medals will be awarded to the top three overall males and females at each event.
But you don’t need to be aiming to be a “contender” for Series points. Each run is still a stand-alone trail event, and we would love to see you out there no matter what your motivation.
As ever, the focus of the Series is to encourage runners of all abilities – whether you are new to trail running or a veteran – and we hope that you find the pre- and in-event instructions plain and simple, to allow you more time to enjoy the event! We love running trails and we just want you to fall in love with it too. Or to stay in love with them even after you have run your event.
And we have also introduced a special “Kids’ Run” for children 12 years old and under. For just $5 each child entrant will receive a bib and the opportunity to run on a short (1km or under) trail course. Their event is untimed so that they all have a chance to run a trail without the pressure to do well against their peers.
Summer is a great time to get out and exercise, especially first thing in the morning. We hope this Series will continue to inspire people to get out and enjoy the environment, something near and dear to Yumigo!.
Don’t forget to enter all four events before the Anstey Hill race on December 10 to receive your fourth event free!
