It’s time once again to put on your sneakers and celebrate the fossils at the Naracoorte Caves with the 2021 MegaFest – Naracoorte World Heritage Trail Run. The inaugural Naracoorte World Heritage Trail Run was held in 2019 in conjunction with the Naracoorte World Heritage Festival.
The hugely successful event celebrated 50 years since the discovery of the world-famous fossil beds at the Naracoorte Caves and 25 years since the Caves were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The stage was set for the event to return in 2020, but it unfortunately had to be cancelled at the last minute due to COVID restrictions.
When the Trail Run takes centre stage at the Naracoorte Caves on November 14, similar courses will be offered to the inaugural event in 2019, with a course to suit everyone. Participants can choose from the 23km Mega Fauna Run, 15km Stoney Point Run, 5km Dippy Run and the 1km Fossil Dash.
Appreciate the bushland and pine forest trails, the local kangaroo population and other native wildlife, pass sheep farms, vineyards, and not to mention experience the unique limestone formations that are the Naracoorte Caves.
