Welcome to the Perth Hills And Trails running group website.
About us: We are a group of trail-minded runners who run the trails around Perth every week. Whilst there are usually at least two group runs per week (midweek and weekend), you would probably find any one of us running a trail any day of the week! Our group runs vary from around 1.5 hours to 8 hours, from 12km to 50km+
Our experience: We have many varied runners, with varied interests. Some focus on shorter-distance trails, some focus more on ultra distances, some enjoy a bit of track running as well! We have some multisport enthusiasts, including climbers, paddlers, and MTBers. We all, however, have experience on the trails and understand the unique challenges (and joys!) that come with running trails in WA. Running trails necessitates experience with such things as navigation, hydration packs, fuelling on the go, headlamps, snakes, blisters and blood!
Apply to join us here: Please note, use our email list judiciously for arranging runs or informing others about trail running races and such. Please keep the "noise" down.
Ours is a supportive and inclusive environment where we can all become better trained runners, but most importantly, have fun!
Logo'ed running shirts available.
