Blythedale Trail Run

Blythedale Trail Run

04 September 2022

Course Details

Blythedale offers a beautiful mix of shaded coastal forests, plantations, estuary and mangrove swamps with sea views and fresh air aplenty.

There is not a lot of elevation on these routes, but the sandy surface and coastal humidity make up for the hills and these are tougher than one expects!

Walkers welcome on the short & medium courses. The 5km is perfect for children 5yrs and up.

Refuel after your run with your toes in the sand at Grumpy’s Beach Bar!
