The Run Series

The distances for this series are 5K, 8K and 10K. Stage two of the series is a 8Km trail Run. These run follow and meander through the beautiful forest of Donadea. The run is mainly on path and gravel paths but we still love it. Thats why it is in the trailrunner group of events. This course is ideal for those who wish to start trailrunning. It is mainly flat and therefore a fast course. The series is ideal for those wish to improve their distances and times for these distances.
