SEQ TRAIL RUNNING SERIES, QLD
After hosting trail series in the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast, Those Guys Events have brought these together under the umbrella of the South East Queensland Trail Running Series.
The North Face is proud to be the presenting partner for this series that seeks to introduce a wider population to the enjoyment of trail running, and encourage runners to explore lesser known trails in the areas of South East Queensland.
Each event offers options for a short and long course (ranging from 7km – 21km) and runners compete for points to accumulate throughout the series. While there is healthy competition, the events strive to create an inclusive community for runners, and provide entertainment for spectators with coffee vans, bean bag chairs, and board games
Trails explored on the series range from open fire trails to more technical single track. Rehydration stations are at each event and runners are encouraged to carry their own drink bottles to minimise impact on the natural environment of the courses.
