Welcome to the inaugural Naracoorte World Heritage Trail Run. This is an event that hopes to gain the traction of Trail Running as a sport in the region but also link the township of Naracoorte with the World Heritage Naracoorte Caves and its walking trails. Through local businesses’ support, we hope that people come for the run but stay for the Naracoorte hospitality.

In conjunction with the Naracoorte World Heritage Festival, there is the hope that people will be able to enjoy the festivities in a fun and energetic way. Appreciate the bushland and pine forest trails, the local kangaroo population and other native wildlife, pass sheep farms, vineyards, and not to mention experience the unique limestone formations that are the Naracoorte Caves.

There will be four distances covered in the running event including:
• 11am: “Fossil Dash”1km for the children to burn off some energy, then enjoy the new Naracoorte Caves playground afterwards if that isn’t enough!
• 8.15am: “The Dippy” 5km along the cave rooftops that is pram friendly and for those wanting a stroll or shorter run
• 7.30am: “Stoney Point” 13km for those wanting to give trail running a trial run (pun intended)
• 7.00am: “Mega Fauna” 23km run winding through the World Heritage Naracoorte Caves National Park for those wanting more of a challenge

Mandatory Gear TBA
