We have also introduced 3 new feature events for those that want to go the extra mile (or km), with extra-long course, marathon, ultra marathon and multi day options available.

The Sydney Trail Series truly has something on offer for all Trail Runners!

So whether you are new to trail running, or an experienced top level competitor, Sydney Trail Series gives you the opportunity to indulge your passion for Trail Running on a regular basis.

We look forward to seeing you at one of our events, and the smile on your face as you cross the finish line.

The Courses

Manly Dam

A scenic start finish area on the shores of the dam, plus a mix of technical single trails, waterfalls, fire trails, and lovey dam views. The 20km course offers some very nice harbour views! Cool down with a dip in the dam after your run.

St Ives Showground

Starting and finishing at the bushy St Ives Showground, the trails meander around the wildflower gardens. The long course is a challenging 24km, with some scenic single trail running along Cowan Creek.

Kamay Botany Bay

The most scenic of all of the Trail Series courses, starting and finishing on Botany Bay at Kurnell, there is a nice variety of cliff top and ocean side trails, as you wind your way down the coast and back again.

Middle Harbour - Garigal

Starting and finishing under Roseville Bridge, this course takes you along middle harbour and around Bantry Bay. Some very technical sections , but a rewarding course with a glorious middle harbour side start and finish area.

Duffys Forest, Kuringai

Just like going back to school this event starts and finishes with a run around the 200metre athletics track at the Sydney Japanese School. The fastest and least technical of all courses, this course offers a fantastic mix of both single and fire trail, with some lookout views over Broken Bay.

Narrabeen Lakes

A great course with some technical sections and a bit of hill climbing, and descending. This course takes you through some tricky single trails, and rewards your efforts with panoramic views over Narrabeen Lakes and the pacific ocean.

Feature Events

This event adds both 44km and 70km options to the monthly St Ives event, to make this event Sydney’s true trail running festival offering distances from 7km right through to 70km, and a fun festive atmosphere for the day on the main arena of the St Ives Showground.

With such a stunning coastal course on offer Big Coast Run takes the monthly Kamay Botany Bay event , and adds a 35km long course option with some great beach running for those looking for the extra challenge
