Run, cycle and raise money

Riders at the start line in 2017.

Participants once again have the opportunity to run or cycle through scenic bushland in the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park, raising money for Careflight in the process.

Registrations are now open for the annual Woodford to Glenbrook Classic, with the event to take place on September 9, 2018. Teams and individuals are welcome to enter.

Now in its 12th year raising money for CareFlight, the Woodford to Glenbrook Classic covers 25km of undulating bushland, the scenic Oaks Fire Trail runs from the town of Woodford to the Euroka Clearing near Glenbrook.

There is also a popular option to take on the 5km scenic run from the intersection of Oaks Trail and Bennett Ridge trail to the Euroka Clearing.

The event will finish with a community fair-style reception in the beautiful Euroka Clearing.

“The event is a must for keen mountain bikers and trail runners but all are welcome to join in the fun, with activities for the kids, food stalls and displays throughout the day,” said CareFlight Community & Engagement Co-ordinator, John Ebbott.

“Participants of all ages are encouraged to enter. You don’t have to be a professional athlete to enter – everyone is invited to join.”

Participants are supported the full length of the track by Rural Fire Service crews stationed along the way, providing first aid and drinks. A CareFlight doctor and St John Ambulance volunteers will also be in support.
