How it works

Find out more about how Heritage Trail Series works. 

The Venue

Take on a stunning 5km or 10km run for each season at the stunning Leonardslee Lakes & Gardens. This is an exclusive experience in a venue not normally open to running! 

Enter one, two, three or all four of the seasonal events. Enter all four and get the final event for free. 

Experience changing landscapes through the seasons for a unique trail running experience.

The Routes

Choose to run 5km or 10km

Starting at around 9am, the 10km running route will take in two laps of Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens. The 5km will take in just one lap for a less challenging experience.

Routes will be mainly off-road with a mixture of gravel paths and grass fields, with the occasional road section thrown in. They will be challenging but will be designed so as to explore the best parts of the venue including the lakes and woodland gardens.

The 10km route will loop back through the start village halfway and then again before finishing.


A Day Out Together

Friends and family are welcome to join you at the Start to cheer you on. If they want to experience all that the venue has to offer, you can purchase spectator passes for them when you sign up.

Enjoy all the wildlife, including deer, wallabies, as well as incredible sculptures, vineyards, and various cafes. Or why not book dinner at the Interlude restaurant and a stay in the historic house?
