Information

  • We are sad to report that the Calarat Challenge will NOT be going ahead in 2019.
    Cal-wood Education Center and Race Management could not agree on a date that would be beneficial to both parties.
    On behalf of the Race Management Team, I would like to thank everyone that supported this event. We are obviously disappointed that the race will not continue, but we are also very proud of what we were able to accomplish over the last 4 years.
    - Lee Troop.

  • Stay tuned for a brand new event to be launched in early June in Gold Hill to be known as the “Sunset Trail Running Festival.”
