Friday Trail run is a bi-weekly run put on by the BLT Runners.
The format is a 60 – 90 minutes trail run averaging between 6-8km. Unlike other group runs this is an estimated time. Runs have ranged from 50 min to 125 min, due to the routes taken and stops. This route can change based on flood conditions and mud (we like to steer into the mud not away).
This run is only open to BLT registered members, and it is recommended runners attending be comfortable running 6:45-7:15 on the MonRun.
