Quote from Race Director Melina Mellino "Collie has some really special trails that I haven't experienced anywhere else. And it's quickly getting flagged on the "must do list" for adventurers. You're welcomed the moment you arrive in town with trail signage and it oozes cool adventure trail town. Collie Trail Fest is the start of something big"
“The sister event, the Pemby Trail Fest is the largest trail weekend in WA and we know that Collie has the potential to grow even bigger." "We’re extremely excited to bring two awesome running days together for a great weekend in Collie. The feedback we’ve received so far is that once people participate in an event they're drawn back to visit multiple trips throughout the year.” Race Director Melina Mellino said.
