Melbourne Insta Runners Instagram Take over: 1 day, 4 summits

Earlier this month, Enfer Running approached us with an idea. To take over Melbourne Insta Runners page and take the viewers on a tour of some of Melbourne’s top trail running locations. These included The You Yangs, Mt Macedon and the Dandenong Ranges. The idea was to summit all the 3 locations, take a few photos to promote the accessible beauty of the areas, showcase the connection of social trail running, have some fun and document it on Melbourne Insta Runners Instagram account.

The team contacted Melbourne Insta Runners admin, who without hesitation saw the opportunity to promote Melbourne trail running and entertain their followers. They gave the guys the password to the account and with a few ground rules so not to compromise the quality of what their runners want to see, the team was ready to go.shaun-and-nath-climb

At sunrise, the boys headed out in Chris’s 1986 ford campervan for their first stop The You Yangs. From there they ran Mt Macedon, the Dandenongs, and finished at sunset with one last summit at Arthurs Seat.shed-mace

It was an action packed day full of running, walking, old skool tunes, bad dance moves, good food and drink, rest stops, laughs, challenges, support, good fun and the simplicity of enjoying running beautiful locations with friends.atone-yy-48

In total the guys ran around 30kms with over 1500 metres elevation, drove over 500kms and summited 4 peaks.mt-macedon-41
