On the Trails series

What could be better than running on the trails of South Australia?

Located around outer-metro Adelaide, the On the Trails series showcases trail running at its very best.

Explore the beautiful trails of Adelaide amongst native scrub, pine forests, creek lines, and the best climbs we can find. We review our locations and courses each year, but the adventure, fun, organisation and friendly faces we’re known for will always be there.

On the Trails includes short, medium, and long-course distances. We cater for beginners, experienced runners, and everyone in between. Walkers are welcome in all short distances.

Enter the series or individual events for a great morning out.
