29/10/15-Clarkes Road

Traralgon Harriers Race Report 29.10.15

The Clarkes Road run is one of the most scenic runs on the summer series championship schedule. The one lap circuit starts with a relaxing trail run through a pine plantation then a sharp rise to test your hill strength but is well worth the effort where you get a fantastic view of Latrobe Valley and across to Mt Baw Baw. The last few kilometres wind through part of Hazelwood North then back up to where it all started. If you feel like you missed out, don’t worry we will be running this circuit again.

There are plenty more scenic runs ahead on the schedule including, Traralgon South on 5th November, Crinigan Road Reserve, Morwell on 12th November and Edward Hunter Reserve, Moe on 26th November.

Importantly on the Thursday 19 November we are holding a come and try night at the clubrooms, West-end Sports Complex corner Grubb Avenue and Douglas Parade Traralgon.  Enjoy an evening run starting at 6:00pm followed by a free dinner, all welcome. If you’ve ever pondered coming along, see you there.
