On august 17-18 the Scottsdale Rotary Club, for the second year, put on the Rail Trail Run and Ride. Over 250 competitors either ran or rode along the picturesque North-East Rail Trail, between Scottsdale and the Billycock. From a grueling 54km ultramarathon to a 2km race, the event gave everyone the opportunity to get active. Well done to everyone who competed or helped out. This fantastic event not only showcased the North-East Rail Trail to the broader community, but any profit from the event supports the development and ongoing maintenance of the trail. The event is proudly sponsored by Musselroe Wind Farm.
