EDITORS NOTES



EDITORS NOTES

Walkers will be allowed on the 10 kilometre race.
This is the 16th edition of the VWS Trail Challenge and is in support of volunteer wildland firefighters of Volunteer Wildfire Services. It is our largest and most important fundraiser of the year, and certainly ensure we remain operational for the fire season and allow us to train our dedicated volunteers.
The entire day is put on by our volunteers from all aspects of the race, and they will be there to cheer runners at all stages, help shuttle runners from parking areas, man the water stations, are the qualified medics and just generally cheer you on as thanks for your support.
