we  create international standard adventure events, but with a local vibe.


Trail running Gippsland is a partnership between Thought Sports Pty Ltd and East Gippsland Adventure Co.


The Mitchell River Trail Run will be the hallmark event of a new tail running series to be held across Gippsland predominantly in East Gippsland, Wellington, Latrobe City and Baw Baw Shires. 

Thoughts Sports directors Rob and Kathryn Preston reside in Latrobe City and are active members of the local running and Adventure racing communities. They have competed in countless races across Australia and internationally and are passionate about producing memorable events for the Gippsland community. 

East Gippsland Adventure Co. is the inspiration of Tim Boote and Teagan Belfrage. They have been promoting outdoor physical activities to the local East Gippsland community for several years and have a great knowledge of the local scene. In a short time they have built a loyal tribe of followers and shown the desire for more outdoor events in Gippsland. 


We will also be utilising the passion and experience of other prominent trail runners in the Gippsland region. 


As a team we want to create international standard adventure events, but with a local vibe. We know the most amazing landscapes Gippsland has to offer and look forward to sharing these beautiful places with new visitors.


The experience we gained as participants and volunteers in endurance events for more than 25 years all over the world will help shape our future events. 

We would love to partner with other organisations or businesses that have interest in growing outdoor adventures and physical activity in the Gippsland region.
