The Running Company

Out of the dark of Launceston winter emerges an afternoon of racing, embracing all that is muddy and wet.

The 2024 Winter Trail Fest on Sunday 04 August 2024 is a collaboration between local clubs and a school to provide a unique race experience.

Compete in one or two events to test yourself, or compete in all three and become a Trail Champion.

The Cyclocross (CX) stage sees riders tackle trails through the Launceston Grammar campus.

* We will use the SPORTident ActiveCard AIR+ tags for timing (the ones we use for Gravity Enduro events). Note: There is a $150 charge if you don't return the tag at the end of the event! *
