Welcome to Sydney Trail Series


It's been a longer than usual Autumn/Winter break here at Sydney Trail Series, and we're so excited to be back and running again to present the very first Covid Safe Sydney Trail Series event on 22nd November 2020 at St Ives Showgrounds!

We'd like to thank you for your understanding and support in what has been and continues to be some extremely challenging times for race organisers right across the globe. The race format that you know and love will be a little different to usual as we keep our participants, event staff and community safe. One thing that will remain the same is the welcoming camaraderie, challenging trails, friendly competition and huge sense of accomplishment when you cross that finish line!

Sydney Trail Series provides great monthly trail running races to both Sydneysiders and those from further afield. Each month there is a short, medium and long course option to choose from, with plenty of variety on offer at some of the best Trail Running venues Sydney has to offer. From the technical trails around Manly Dam to the stunning Wildflower Gardens of St Ives tracks, you will love the diversity of terrain which is guaranteed to build your trail running skills.

For those runners that want to go the extra mile (or km), each season ends with an extra long course to help you build your trail endurance!  

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!
