Anyone planning to come to Tasmania to take part in the annual Tassie Trails event this September has been advised to book their accommodation well in advance.
Direct Rooms head of marketing Lek Boonlert remarked that the penultimate race of the popular running event – due to take place this year on September 11 – makes Hobart a popular destination at this time.
Runners from across Australia and around the world travel to the island state to experience the tough off-road running course, which sometimes includes routes that pass through streams and rivers. Events kicked off in January with the Tasman Run and other circuits scheduled throughout the year included Freycinet last month and the Labilladiere Peninsula in May.
The final event of the season – the Tasmanian Mountain Running Championship – will be held on October 23.
“This running event seems to be hugely popular throughout the region, both with Aussie natives and with visiting runners too,” Boonlert stated, adding that his firm advises anyone planning to travel to Hobart at this time to make their hotel reservations early to secure the best rates.
To sign up for September’s 15 km event, you can register online – the entry fee is $30.
