A trail run in the heart of the New England High Country. Join us in the New England on Sunday 22 September 2019.


Come and explore the beautiful Dumaresq Dam and Mt Duval areas near Armidale, NSW.  Armidale is the highest city in Australia so join the Duval Dam Buster Trail Run starting at 1000m above sea level and experience some altitude. Entries are open! Be quick though… some events sold out in 2018!



The Duval Dam Buster is held a few km's outside of Armidale, in the heart of New England High Country. There are four distances: a 3km (open to children, adults and families), 8km, 15km and 30km events. Want to know more?

DDB course

Where do you run? If it's the 15km or 30km you go up, and then come back down. All events start from a marshalling area at the Dumaresq Dam picnic area before going separate ways. Learn more about the course here.

The details

Ready to get down to the nitty gritty? The race is on Sunday, 22 September 2019. Registrations are open now (some events sold out last year so be quick!). Bib collection will be on the morning of the run. To find out more details click here.
