Walk about Creek Run- Saturday 18 July 8am – Enter Now!

Come and join us for a run around the Enoggera Reservoir at The Gap on the 18th of July.

It is one of my favourite places to run, it is not too hard, but still nice and hilly.  There are some beautiful views over the dam.  It is just a great spot to be!

The run starts at the Dam Wall near The Gap Park ‘n Ride (far end of The Gap) and finishes at the Beach of the Visitors’ Centre of the Head Quarters of d’Aguilar National Park, which is called ‘Walkabout Creek’, hence the name for the run.

We’ll have some morning tea and presentations at the beach, and it is also a nice opportunity to visit the centre, it has a wild life centre which has a platypus, wombat, snakes, lizards, turtles, many rainforest birds and wallabies.

Entry fees: TRAQ members $25, non-TRAQ-members $30

What you need to know:

Course
It is a tough 22km with 1200m of climb and 650m of descent. Make sure you carry 1 litre of water.

It is a beautiful run that leads from Cedar Flats via the top of Northbrook Mountain and England Creek to the rainforest at the top of Mount Glorious, finishing at the clearing opposite the Maiala picnic area. Description: from Cedar Flats valley climb east up the ridgeline firebreak, it is initially steep, but then runnable. Turn left at the first junction, then right at Northbrook Mountain junction and go down to England Creek (midpoint and manned check point) then there is a continuous 600m climb up to the top of Mount Glorious. When you are about to reach the top, turn left onto the historic stone-lined western ridge single trail through the rainforest. There are a few stone stairs you will climb to reach the Western Window from which it is a flat run to the finish at the clearing opposite Maiala Park. Also, see map and profile.
