2020 Spring Series Update

Thanks for your understanding and support!

Welcome to Sydney Trail Series


 We know many of you will be keen to welcome in Spring and the warmer weather it brings! We'd like to take this opportunity to provide you with an update regarding our Spring Series of STS. Given the ongoing situation with Covid-19 in Sydney, we've decided that in the interests of the safety of our competitors, staff and the wider public, that we will not be proceeding with the September or October events.

We will reassess the situation again in October, and if the situation at that time with Covid 19 allows us to proceed with the event without any compromise to safety, we are prepared to present our November races based at St Ives Showgrounds which are scheduled for Sunday 22nd. If the November races are able to proceed, we will let everyone know at least a month prior, and provide all relevant Covid Safe requirements to everyone involved to ensure the safety of all participants and staff.

Thankyou for your understanding and support in these challenging times, and until then, keep safe and keep running!

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!
