Our projects for 2016 and beyond

March 

Riverina Lightning Trail (Replacing the Fishy Trail Run) 

10km Off Road Race. 

It’s an out and back along the lightning fast Kiewa Track. A great introduction to trail running for the local parkrunner and C2C participant. Opportunities also exists for regional talent to test themselves at ferocious pace, in an attempt to claim an off road speed title. 

 

June July August.

Riverina Endurance Trail Running Series 

2015 marked an impressive response from both local and interstate competitors. Our 3 brutally spectacular mountain races were tackled by international level athletes as well as first time trail runners and mountaineers. Also with the 30km we saw endurance apprenticeships were commenced, with many only ever going as far as 21km.  

The 2016 series will hold high expectation of participation from both ends of the scale.

Who can experience the hard earned summit views+ the title of hardcore no matter what the completion time?

Will we see great battles for the title of  Mountain Series Champion - Across what we believe to be a collection of three of the toughest courses for their distance in Australia . 

 

Projects in the works

Riverina Ultra.

With river, mountains, lakes and countryside so beautiful, the Riverina Ultra Project is one to showcase an all in one endurance feat.

Event dates are TBA but expect to visit Mahers, Huon, Hunchy, the Murray River and Albury Ranges. The journey to earning your title as an ultra endurance athlete is staged over 2 days, this poses the opportunity to stake out the endeavor in a 2 day journey or conquer it in a one day raw performance. 

 

Riverina X Trail Short Courses 

Short fast trail races

Plans are to get runners on the trails more often and experience the best aspects. Expect races to individually feature criterium, single track assaults, summit ascents & descents. 

With simple race logistics, we aim to be able to keep these races as ‘club’ style hit outs with low fees and midweek or weekend potential.

Parklands is committed to a partnership culture contact us if your club or business would like to be involved. Together we do better.
