Bloated Goat Summer Series Finale
Date and Time
Trail Running through Wungong Regional Park! Join us for a 30km, 20km or 12km fun filled trail run.
The finale to the "Summer Series" is Bloated Goat - an event not to be missed! Trails are fun and open to everyone - we've got a distance for every type of runner! For the full Bloated Goat we get adventurous types who've accomplished plenty of other fitness achievements maybe a half, full, or even ultra marathon!
Triple Black "Bloated Goat" Course Description: 30km +/- 1600m
This event is tough. But it's got a following of people who want to "Beat the Goat". And we challenge you to give it a go! It's an off road trail running event, that's approximately 30km, with heaps of climbing! How much climbing you ask? Great question: +/-1600m. Up and down, up and down. And when you think you're finished, "oh...hmmm...think again" Up and down...
Double Black "Little Fat Lamb" Course Description: 20km +/- 1000m
This event is challenging, but if you've completed the Black Course in the Summer Series, it's an achievable goal. You can use all your 3 month training to smash this out!
Black "Bleating Kid" Course Description: 12.8km +/- 570m
This event is challenging, but if you've completed the Blue Course events in the Summer Series, it's an achievable goal. And like Little Fat Lamb, you can use all your training to smash it out.
All courses will be well flagged - and marshalled at a few key intersections. We will do our best to keep you on course, but it is your responsibility to keep aware of the flagging.
