Port Macquarie

Trails and Tails

You know dogs are man's best friend, and they hate missing out on jumping in the car and heading to a new place to sniff and explore with their best friend on the trails. So join a race where you can bring them along in the beautiful Cairncross State Forest near Port Macquarie on the Mid North Coast of NSW.

Events are designed to test out your trail skills and endurance, but this race is for everyone. If you are just starting out in trail running or an ultra runner, this course caters for all levels and skills. You can walk the picturesque course or you can run or even race it.

This may be your first official trail run with your dog or you may be old pro's at trail racing together. So what do you need to know?

You have options for either 21 kilometres, 14 kilometres, 7 kilometres or a short option for beginners 4 kilometres.

​The Course (7 kilometres) has about 108 metres of elevation per lap, so it is quite flat. Your best friends have tons of energy, but it can be a new experience consistently running alongside you in a race endurance format, so pick a race that is suited to your dogs fitness level.

You will travel through land of the traditional owners, the Birpai People.
