Know More

The first event in the Harties Trail Experience is aimed at newcomers to trail running. Make no mistake, this is no walk in the park, we aim to guide you along a true trail experience in an area that we love. While the 6-km and 11-km events are ideal for newbies, the 21-km is a proper run that will test your metal!

The Harties River Hiking Trail and our specifically scouted new sections offer a mix of ups and downs, both long and short. All routes run on established trails and roads. The trails can be technical at times, specifically on the steepish ups and downs. Each course features a high point that offers a rewarding view.

Why the Harties Trail Experience?
