Big Foot Sprints is the annual two-course sprint event with an exciting chasing start for your second course. There are only two classes: open men and open women. Everybody runs the same courses. The second course is where the fun starts. It is run as a true chasing start, based on your time in over the first course.

Courses are by Richard Mountstephens in the sprint-challenging bush terrain of Frenchs Forest using the 1:4000 Ferretville map.

Location: Ararat Reserve, Bantry Bay Road, Frenchs Forest.
