“We have some of the most spectacular trail running here in our own backyard. Every inch as spectacular as nationally recognised races. And it’s right here, just up the road!” Ryan Lindsay, Passionate NQ Trail Runner
Trail Running Events
Minimum Impact Trail Running
As all Dirty Northern Trail Running Series courses are selected with scenery and running enjoyment in mind, we believe our events showcase some of the best runs, through some of the most scenic locations, in the Wet Tropics.
And as we want to maintain the natural beauty on our doorstep for future generations, we are proud to focus on minimising the collective carbon and environmental footprint of each event. This means that before, during and after each race, the runners, supporters and spectators are encouraged to follow standard ‘leave no trace’ environmental guidelines.
This is an essential component of permit criteria and is vital to the success of future permit applications. Event coordinators consider waste elimination and resource use a priority in all purchasing and event planning.
So, when planning your transport to and from events, why not contact event coordinators to see if you can catch a ride with, or offer a lift to, other competitors? And don’t forget, no disposable cups, plates or cutlery are available on the courses or at the finish so consider this in your hydration plan.
Thanks for your cooperation, DNTR Team.
