PEOPLE who participate in all three of the upcoming Trek the Trail events could be in the running to win a new mountain bike.
Shire President David Lavell said in 2016 Trek the Trail would run as three separate events, rather than one large event.
"There will be a walking, running and cycle event to cater to people of all fitness abilities and strengths," he said.
"We anticipate that thousands of people will take part in this year's Trek, which will showcase three great sections of the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.
"If people are feeling really fit, they can participate in our Trek Triathlon and go in the running to win a new bike."
Cr Lavell said Trek Triathlon involved participants completing all three events and posting a picture on social media.
"Wristbands will handed out at each event and people need to take a selfie with their band at the start line of each of the three events," he said.
"Once the third event is over, people should send the photos in a collage to the Trek the Trail Facebook page. They will then go in the running to win a brand new Trek mountain bike worth $2000.
"This is a fantastic competition to launch the new Trek the Trail format, as well as encouraging people to get outdoors, explore the trail and spend quality time with friends and family."
The following FREE events will be held in 2016, starting at 8am:
