The Metro Series is held in and around metropolitan parks and reserves throughout the suburbs of Perth. Events are held most Saturday evenings between November and February, when it is too hot for running in the bush by day. Various courses are available, ranging from 3-8 km in length.
The 2015-2016 Metro Series is now completed for the year.
These family and runner-friendly events are easily achievable by anyone who can read a street map, and with a mass start at 5pm are over in time for you to enjoy your Saturday evening! These events attract many regular participants, both members and non-members, and there is a briefing for newcomers before each event.
There are prizes for the course winners each week, and sponsors' draw prizes. Series winners in various classes are determined by points accumulated over the runner's best seven races.

A PDF copy of the 2015 - 2016 Metro Series Brochure remains available.
As the 2016 - 2017 Series events are confirmed they will be published here.
Preliminary info for the 2016-2017 Metro Series
The forthcoming Metro Series will feature a few changes. The season will now commence in early October and run right through until March so that there are no big gaps between the bush season and the summer season so there is no excuse to slack off over summer! This year we are also reintroducing selected Sunday morning events for those times when Saturday afternoon can get a bit hot as well as a scattering of timed score events (using electronic punching) to keep the season interesting. Make sure to check the calendar closely so that you don't come on the wrong day!
We will update this page with more info and venues once the season has been finalised.
