What does this logo mean for Navrun? Navrun 4wd Events is a responsible entity which promotes tread lightly values. All events must go through the vigorous scruterneering process through Parks Victoria and DELWP in order to obtain a permit to run. Navrun is a registered license holder through Parks Victoria and DELWP and must abide by all conditions set by them. All events are strictly navigational and not timed. In addition for public safety and environmental protection, we speed limit each and every event, stick to defined tracks and avoid tracks which are unmaintained and extremely eroded, which may cause further damage to the region.

Mine Tours and Ghost Town tours are now operating in the Walhalla-Woods Point Region. See my website for dates and details.

Brief Definition of each type of Navrun: Everyone's needs are catered for. The Amazing Race is ideal for the families in basic cross terrain vehicles and Navrun weekends are a bit more adventurous mixing the keen teams with the family teams in daily driver rigs. Alpine Pursuit is getting more competitive with entry level enduro. Navrun After Dark is similar to the Navrun event, except it is a day and night event. The new High Country Challenge is a mix of hard navigation and challenging but moderate 4wd driving. This event caters for your first timers, beginners and the experts.

Allan Matthews and Clinton "Macca" McDonald are also part of the extended family of Navrun. They contribute in the field work set up, and in putting together the competition notes.

Clinton......Clinton has been around 4wd's since he was a kid, after a trip with an Uncle into the High Country piqued his interest.
