Strewn like a million sapphires, Bass Strait is where Two Bays Trail Run entrants will land after an exhilarating run that takes in the sights of Arthurs Seat and Greens Bush. A jewel in the running calendar, the 28km and 56km event is capped at 1400 entrants by Parks Victoria and in 2020 will celebrate 10 years as an official event after beginning informally in 2005.

Entrants draped in Hawaiian shirts and swimwear embody the “cruisy vibe” race director Rohan Day says gives compliant runners a handy front line start. From climbing to Arthurs Seat’s higher heights for a selfie to traversing the native bushland, Rohan says it is the breathtaking views of Bushrangers Bay near Cape Schanck that rate highly. 

“Beginning at Dromana and concluding at the Cape Schanck Lighthouse, the course is amongst the most scenic in Australia and sells out each year,” he says. “Runners are treated to a range of surfaces and settings: single track, coastal trail, grassy trail, dirt road and forest canopy.” 

If Arthurs Seat doesn’t leave your legs burning, the 99 steps at Burrabong Creek will, but thankfully volunteer-organised training helps you to master your mind. Qualification standards are in place to compete, with the record 28km times for men and women being 1hr 46min and 2hr 2min respectively. Entrants receive a medal and fluids upon completion, with food trucks helping to settle tummy rumbles. 

“It is a special event, not just another run,” Rohan says. “We have some really experienced volunteers who are not only slick operators but bring enthusiasm, costumery and decorations.” 

Rohan is also the race director of the Wonderland Run in the Grampians and has previously entered the January 12 Two Bays Trail Run in his aptly themed board shorts. Details: www.twobaystrailrun.com
