About us

Welcome to the Kowen Trail Run, proudly hosted by the Wamboin Trail Runners Inc.

The Kowen Trail Run is a series of three races held on the third Sunday of January and of June and the first weekend of October every second year.

All races start at the Wamboin Community Hall, 112 Bingley Way, Wamboin N.S.W Australia

As you know, Wamboin relies on its local rural fire brigade to serve and protect us in sometimes life-threatening situations, and we support them by using the Kowen Trail Run series of events as fundraisers. They are first responders to incidents and support other brigades in the region – while we value them immensely in Wamboin, their value reaches beyond just our community.

The Kowen Trail Run is a not-for-profit event with proceeds going to the Wamboin Rural Fire Brigade. Total donations to date stand at $59,200

  • June 2017 – $5,000
  • January 2018 – $6,200
  • June 2018 – $10,000
  • Sept 2018 – $5,000
  • Jan 2019 – $11,000
  • June 2019 – $16,000

What we love about holding these races is the community atmosphere here in Wamboin, and not just what is clearly visible from the number of local runners, family members, volunteers and fire brigade members, but the passion and dedication shown by every single person who turns up to participate, who shares in the enjoyment, determination and hard work of completing such an event, along with the fulfillment afterwards that comes with this.
