TRAQ Trail Race Series

Each year, participants have the opportunity to earn points in every TRAQ event towards the TRAQ Trail Race series.

TRAQ is committed to adhere to the advice and requirements of state, national and international health authorities to assist in the community response to slow down COVID-19.

Apart from cancelling our Washpool, Pinnacles, Brisbane Trail Marathon, Lake Manchester and the Camp Mountain Challenge events this year, we encourage trail runners individually to comply with the federal and state government COVID-19 requirements to reduce the spread of the virus.

The QLD Government has issued a Roadmap to easing restrictions and a more detailed  Roadmap – Sporting clubs and organisations

For you as runner and us as TRAQ this means :

From 16 May:

– Informal runs group runs up to 10 people. 

– No club activites in terms of community sport, hence no recce runs or events yet.

– Stay within a 150 km zone around your home.

From 13 June:

– Informal runs group runs up to 20 people. 

– club activites in terms of community sport up to 20 participants.

– Stay within a 250 km zone around your home.

Please think about the intent of the measures.


– If you feel unwell, stay at home.

– Stay 1.5 meters apart from each other.

– Adhere to personal hygiene standards.

Latest updates

We understand that you may be curious to see what events will be on once the situation around COVID-19 eventually eases. At this stage, we at TRAQ don't want to rush into options before we are more back to normal, and do not plan to have our events on this year. This includes Walkabut Creek and - announced earlier - Lake Manchester. We plan a full set of events, possibly with a bonus ending, for 2021. See our 'events' tab with the days we aim for. Stay safe, train well. ... See MoreSee Less

TRAQ statement and update on the 2020 #qldtrailrunningchampionships

As we are living in unprecedented times with COVID-19 changing the way we are living at the moment, TRAQ is unsure what races on the Queensland Trail Running Championships calendar will still occur in 2020 and how this will impact the Championships. We also understand that race directors may not know if their events are going ahead or if they can be postponed till later in the year.

While it is TRAQ's intention to proceed with the Championships in some form, it reserves the right to modify the Championships in any way it deems necessary or cancel it if need be.

TRAQ will be in touch with the event organisers, and the TRAQ Management Committee will decide on the future of the 2020 Queensland Trail Running Championships as soon as there is sufficient information available to do so.

TRAQ really appreciates your patience in this matter and hopes you understand – keep an eye out on our website or our social media pages to keep up to date with any further info!
