The Glow Worm Tunnel Trail Weekend is back!
Summit Gear Katoomba and Blue Mountains Fitness have taken over the event from MountainsSports. Rob and Tony are passionate trail runners and we think the event is in good hands!
Most of the course has survived the bushfires and floods. Parks are busy fixing up any problems on the trail. We have put together some awesome events and combinations. Entry numbers are limited.

This is the schedule of events:

The new 2 Day Marathon gives you the chance to complete the tough Glow Worm Tunnel Marathon course over two days. Do the first leg over Pipeline and back and around the ruins on Day 1 and on Day 2 do the second leg of the Marathon (the Half Marathon course).
The Kids 1km will be open to all kids Under 12. Registration for this event will be on the day and is not included in the Register Now event entry process. Register at event hub.
