OMFG RUNNING FESTIVAL: SAT 8 JAN 2022

In 1896, The Swan View Railway Tunnel was opened. From the very beginning, it was acknowledged that it would be more suitable as a trail running tunnel than steam locomotives, but given the financial investment into the construction, it remained a train tunnel until 1966. It remains today, the finest preserved trail running tunnel in all of Western Australia.

The tunnel, along with the Eagle View & Heritage Trails, serve as the venue for the OMFG Trail Running Festival. The festival supports the On My Feet Group, a charity supporting the homeless and at risk of homelessness through support and running programmes to help them gain skills and knowledge to integrate back into society and employment opportunities.

The Festival, is a collection of trail running events covering 6k, 10k, 16k or 25k with all events passing through the iconic tunnel on the way to the finish line.

All events this edition will start and finish at Pechey Rd in Swan View on Saturday the 8th January 2022

What does OMFG stands for?

On My Feet Group

On My Feet transforms lives.

They assist those at risk or dealing with homelessness by providing exercise groups and structured programs which are aimed at creating pathways to self-sufficiency and improved wellbeing.

Being homeless is more than the absence of shelter, and we believe the most effective solution is to empower the individual to drive the changes necessary to get back on their feet.

They offer a hand up, not another handout.
