Wild Goose Chase
June 25, 2021 - June 27, 2021
It’s hard to describe the Wild Goose Chase Running Festival. With race titles such as ‘Loose Goose’ and ‘Duck’s Nuts’, one could be forgiven that it is all a light hearted fun play on words and an easy trail weekend. But let me give you another opinion. You’d need to have a loose screw to tackle the Goose 50 miler multi-day and you’d be nuts to attempt the Duck’s 100 miler multi-day. Sure, our caricature mascots are a little questionable, but maybe this is our way to deceive you from the toughness of this event.
The Wild Goose Chase Running Festival is held in the ‘secret’ Avon Valley National Park. It is one of the lesser utilised parks on Perth’s fringes and yet boasts spectacular gorges and valleys that are found unexpectedly, popping out when you turn a corner. The climbs and troughs are relentless at times and the famous ‘Big G’ climb is certain to have you cursing.
The Wild Goose Village is home to our camping, catering, firepits, comradery, finish line and most wonderful atmosphere perfect for your family cheer squad. In fact, this whole weekend is perfect for the family with running events especially for the kids!
This weekend comfortably has distance offerings for all abilities with events ranging from 5k to 100 miles!!!
Trails, hills, camping, firepits, catering, great friends, new friends, hot showers, personal achievements and family. All the perfect ingredients for a unique and wonderful trail running festival.
