Camp Mountain Race Report and Results

2017 Camp Mountain Race

See the results HERE

Thanks to all you competitors and volunteers who made the first Camp Mountain Challenge organised by TRAQ a great morning. The Photo Album can be viewed via the TRAQ Facebook page.

Congratulations to all of the runners! The weather was perfect; nice, crisp and the wind subsided overnight, which made for pleasant race conditions.

It’s a little shorter and sharper than our usual TRAQ races, but there was the option to do the ‘longer, easy’ 13.3km race, which quite a number of people opted for.

We also incorporated kids’ races and it was great to see you brave speedy kids out there.

As the challenge incorporated the Queensland Mountain Running Championships, there were young and older age category state medals to be won. Whether you received a medal or not, all could be proud of the achievements in one of the tougher athletics events.

Queensland State Mountain Running Champions are: David Barton (35:27) and Åshild Krige (39:15): Congratulations!

Different organisations joined forces to make this event happen. Thanks to Queensland Athletics for your support from the office, the officials and volunteers (Don, the Fletcher family, Dick, Rick, Irene, Nick and Benita).

Thanks to WICEN (Robert and Crew) for your ongoing event support by providing radio communications, thanks to The Walton Bridge Girl Guides (Faye and crew) for helping with the catering,

Thanks to our TRAQ volunteers: Joris, Pete, Julie, Leland, Mark, Greg, Kate, Oscar and Lani, Greg, Carolyn and the junior race marshals. Awesome job; great to work with you!

Last but not least, thanks Tim, Laura and Maddy from The Trail Co. for your ongoing support of our races!
