Hoka One One Trail Running Series : Race 3 : Silvan

HokeOneOneSeries Event: Hoka One One Trail Running Series : Race 3 : Silvan
Distance: 7km short / 15.5km medium / 21km long
Date: Sunday the 7th August 2016
Location: Silvan
Organised by: Rapid Ascent

The Silvan area of the Dandenongs is quite simply a magnificent part of the world and Race 3 is often the highlight of the series for many runners.
You’ll race along trails that wind through mighty Mountain Ash that seemingly reach to the sky overhead, you’ll run past lush tree ferns and gullies of verdant undergrowth all in the friendly company of the local birdlife, including crimson rosellas, kookaburras and the superb lyrebird.
These races are the toughest (but most rewarding) of the series with all courses being a few kms longer and noticeably hillier in comparison to Races 1 and 2. The trails are still non-technical and runners of all backgrounds will return with smiles from ear to ear – but – prepare yourself for a challenge because these are tough races!
Silvan was the host venue for Race 3 in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015 so is well known to runners for the great trails in the area.
