Just a reminder that we have our free Mt Glorious trails recce happening this Saturday morning! This run will have a lead and tail runner so nobody gets left behind, and is great way to get to know the course (and maybe a way to work off those Australia Day beers 😉) Head to our Facebook event page for all the details! We hope to see you there 😁 ... See MoreSee Less

For the moment, while we confirm which races are happening in 2020, assume all 2019 races are included in 2020’s Championship. The first QTRC race is Hares and Hounds this weekend! Good luck to everyone running in it!We created the #queenslandtrailrunningchampionships due to the ever increasing popularity of the sport. The number of Queensland trail races has increased dramatically over the past few years and the series is designed to link all of these races together, to encourage you to participate in races that you wouldn’t have thought of, and to provide a pathway for athletes who have the talent and the ambition to compete at a higher level. The events that make up the series are predominantly 15km or longer, the majority of the course is on trail and it’s a distance race (as opposed a ‘last one standing’ or 3, 6, 12 hour event). There are races that are exceptions such as King of the Mountain in Pomona. Our main goal at the moment is to get the 2020 races finalised, but for the moment assume that all the 2019 races will be included in this year’s championship. This means our first race for the year is Hares and Hounds this weekend in the Glasshouse Mountains! Good luck to all runners taking part 💪 📸 Glasshouse Trail Series ... See MoreSee Less
