Congratulations!

We have birthed a Trail Series, Perth!

http://perthtrailseries.com/

Or, we will. With everyone's support. This is something a core group of us has been talking about since I moved here in 2008. It's time to make it happen. I'll need lots of support - people to race direct events, etc, but we can make this really special. To me, it's a bit akin to what a group does in Calgary with short trail races during their off season - the dead of their winter. This will happen during our off season - the dead of summer :)

My goals are really twofold:

-provide a more gentle means for newbies to get into trail running without having to enter an ultra as their first event

-provide some great training opportunities during the summer season for ultra runners, adventure racers, rogainers and orienteers, and maybe even the odd triathlete

Spread the word, please!
