The Tarn Shelf, Mt Field Run in Tasmania on Sunday, 31 January 2016 is a 14.5km trail run and is part of the Tasmanian Trail Running Series.
Please note this event will not be held in 2017 due to permit issues.
The Tarn Shelf on Mt Field is one of the finest alpine runs Tassie has on offer. Starting at Lake Dobson the run begins with a steep climb up to the Mt Mawson ski huts before heading out to the Rodways and Tarn shelf. The route along tarn shelf is a truly magical alpine wonderland with secret tarns and little waterfalls at every turn. Once past Lake Newdegate the trail heads down, dropping past Twilight tarn, to the Broad River valley and Lake Webster. From here it's a lovely run up the valley through the buttongrass and snowgums back to the finish at Lake Dove.
