Set in the stunning surrounds of the South Burnett region and taking place over the October long weekend, this is an EPIC running event.

The MRF is incorporated into the Murgon Rail Trail Festival and offers events for walkers and runners of 5km, 10km, half marathon and full marathon in addition to 6 hour and 12 hour events (with team options).

The route takes participants along the Kingaroy to Kilkivan Rail Trail, along out and back routes starting at the Murgon trail head. The section has a bitumen cover and offers a superb running surface for both running and walking while retaining the benefits of a typical trail environment. It's flat by no means and will be very fast for some while others can simply take their time and soak up the atmosphere.
