Tail Runner Events is about encouraging everyone to go outside and play. To create and make memories of your outdoor adventures, to help you stay motivated, stay healthy and exercise with your four legged training partner or walking companion.


27 and 28 July 2019

Australia’s most unique timed  trail running event where the whole family can enter, including the family dog.

Some of us train every day with our four legged training partners and then when the event comes around we have to leave them behind, well not anymore, finally an event where you can enter and run with your dog.

But if you don’t have a dog that’s okay, we know lots of people who love dogs but their lifestyle doesn’t allow them to accommodate a dog, everyone is welcome

This event is a fantastic way of being able to run or walk while raising funds for our chosen charities BackTrack Youth Works and Herd2Homes working dog rescue group.

The timed events for the 15km, 30km, 55km will be held on Saturday 27 July. The Family 4km Fun Run and Relay Event will be held on the Sunday morning 28 July 2019. (The 4km is not timed)

Everyone gets a finishers medal including your dog.
