2017/18 Membership open now. Link Here
TRAQ’s new membership year starts on the first of October 2017, so you are able to sign up now and get the membership discount entry fee for all of our events up to October next year.
The Committee decided to keep the same low membership fee that we asked for during the first nine months of this year. Once again we joined up with Qld Athletics and QRun to ensure that we are part of the bigger running family and because this affiliation allows us to maintain very low membership fees, as we are covered by their insurance.
The basic TRAQ membership fee is $17.50, and TRAQ Volunteer (no running!) membership is free. If you are considering participating in more events of Qld Athletics (Track and Field and Cross Country) you can now become a TRAQ Dual Member for $62.50 . This is a nice offer by Qld Athletics to us because of our special ‘State Body’ Status, which basically gives the Traditional Qld Athletics Membership at 1/2 price. These are the most popular memberships, contact me if you would like to become a TRAQ member with a different Qld Athletics membership.
We’d love to have your company again for all of our events!
Benefits for members:
- Personal accident cover at TRAQ and QA events.
- Generous TRAQ discount on entries.
- QA access to their events/championships and events organised by other affiliated clubs/organisations.
- Allows you to represent the state and Australia at national and international level in athletics events.…. if you have that ambition.
If you would like to receive more discounts for QA events, you can take up a more expensive membership option. This may suit you if you for example would like to participate in many track and field events.
Helping at events is also a great way to give something back. More helpers mean more events. If you can help out at any event please send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org. Most jobs are easy and you a good way to get to know your fellow runners better too – some, like course marking or demarking, still let you run on the day.
We also welcome out-of-state supporters; you can just sign up for the newsletter to keep in touch with the trails scene, or join if you wish.

Who is TRAQ?
You! The membership sets our priorities at the Annual General Meeting and, through volunteering occasionally, makes events possible. You’ll also notice occasional survey questions like “where would you most like to see a new trail run” slipped into online entries, so we get some direct feedback.
