Saturday’s running of the inaugural Gippsland Trail running event in memory of local runner Duncan Orr was a huge success. Duncan was an influential member of the Traralgon harriers. It was his dream to enjoy the company of the friendly ultra- marathon running community by holding a locally run ultra-trail event in Gippsland.
The event was organised by his wife Anna who along with family and friends of Duncan were able to put together a challenging and exciting event. The event was well supported by runners from the ultra-marathon running community whose friendly attitude made it a great day to remember Duncan.
There are hundreds of great photos posted on the Duncan's Run Hundred Facebook page.
The event was also well supported by the following organisations and businesses:
the Grand Strzelecki Track,
GDF Suez Hazelwood
Friends of Tarra Bulga,
Balook and District Residence Association,
Parks Victoria and HVP Plantations
Runners World Magazine
