Perth Trail Series
The Perth Trail Series started in 2012 as a summer race series, consisting of 5 short but challenging trail races in the hills surrounding Perth, Western Australia. Events in the "Summer Series" range from 9 to 19 kms, with all five races having a choice of two distances. The series is designed to challenge both new and experienced trail runners. A points competition comprises part of the summer series.
Due to requests for more trail races after the first summer series, a trail "half" (~22km) was added in April 2012. In 2013, the trail half (Half Truth) and a 50km ultra (Truth or Consequences) moved to Serpentine NP. In late 2013 we held our first night race, "Moon Shadow."
Our Half Truth (25k) and Truth or Consequences Ultra were held on Saturday 4 April 2015.
Nearly all events have discounts for Australian Ultra Runners' Association (AURA) members.
Volunteers are offered both tangible and intangible rewards, including the unending gratitude of your fellow trail runners, so please consider lending a hand.
