Starting at Mount Eliza Regional Park, the 8km trail run travels the same line as the 4km course with two main departures, namely the quarry and Wooralla Drive hills.

The trail run will leave from the fringe of the festival space within the Mount Eliza Regional Park and head along a myriad of trails where you reach the first departure which incorporates a steady climb to the top of the Moorooduc Quarry. It is here that you can soak up the views for a minute and descend down the last of the 470 steps to the marshalling point for a well-deserved drink.  You then cross Balcombe Creek, and pass adjacent to the lake where you will be cheered on by the Festival spectators. You will proceed along the railway trail towards Wooralla Drive where you encounter the second departure as the trail leads up a short hill on Wooralla Drive which is sure to get your legs working and heart beating.  You head up the hill, you grab a drink at the third drink station, all whilst taking in some beautiful bushland views.  You will then headback to the bottom of Wooralla Drive, then back along the railway trail leading you to the finish line in the heart of the festival space within Mount Eliza Regional Park.
