Welcome to Australia’s newest off road ultra running event, traversing the Myall Coast.

The race is based in Hawks Nest taking runners along beaches, past lakes and through forests, tracking some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the Australia. It will inarguably have the most beautiful half way point in Australia beside the beach at Seal Rocks, taking runners past the iconic lighthouse.

This trail running experience will be unique as it combines coastal trails with forest tracks, sand dunes, beaches and rocky headlands taking runners through remote wilderness areas.

In the Lakes Trail Festival runners can compete 100km, 75km, 50km or 25km, as a team or solo. There is also a 12km & 5km course for those wanting a shorter trail experience.

You can run solo or in a team. Solo runners can go for a quick run or go all day in the ultimate 100km. Teams of up to 4, can run the 100km course separated into 25km legs and get to finish together.

Race weekend starts with registration on Friday 1 July with races starting on Saturday 2 July 2022.

This is a great time of year to go for a run. Temperature wise it will be cool at night but mild during the day and most likely dry – perfect running weather.
