RACE 1: Plenty Gorge Sunday 16 June

When: Sunday 16 June 2019
Where: Yellow Gum Park, Plenty Gorge (at the end of Goldsworthy Rd, Plenty)

We return this year to one of our favorite venues of all-time, the beautiful Yellow Gum Park on the Plenty River in North Eastern Melbourne.

This often forgotten corner of Melbourne is located just past Bundoora and sits only 30km from the Melbourne CBD.

Check out some pics below from our last event at Plenty in 2016! 

What impact does running have on you?

We are excited to be assisting with a research study exploring the benefits of exercising in nature.

Dr Tim Chambers from Australian College of Applied Psychology (ACAP) and his "green exercise" study is hoping to address the knowledge gap of exercise in nature and its associated benefits.

Individuals who enter in the GOLD category of the Rapid Ascent Trail Running Series are invited to take part in the study.

Research participants will be asked to complete 7 brief online surveys (one before the series, one after each event, and one 6 months post-series—cakewalk!).

Survey questions will focus on mental health, well-being, and runners’ experiences of completing the events.
