AAA Racing – Australia

AAA Racing has come about as a result of 11 years experience of trail and track ultra runs in the SEQ region, both participating in and organising,

Race director, Alun Davies, has run 60+ events of marathon or greater (including 46 ultra marathons), as well as cycling many 'Grand Fondo' events. Currently in training for the elusive first ironman finish (sharks permitting!), 2018 could well be a big year!

Run in conjunction with the team from Out There Cycling, this event takes place along a superb section of the BVRT.

This is a good, fast surface for both runners and MTB riders alike, making it suitable for runners and riders of all abilities.

So come out and enjoy this first ever epic duathlon!

What is a hill climb challenge, you ask? Essentially - you challenge yourself to see how many laps you can do. It's like a track ultra!

Round 2 of the 2018/2019 AAA Racing Hill Climb Challenge will take place at Mt Pleasant Heights and will run from 6:00 pm, January 26th until 9:00 am, January 27th.

The stiffest climb of the three rounds is undertaken through a natural bush with approximately 223 metres of ascent/descent and a round trip of 2.7 km (again, for the statisticians, that's a touch over 8,200 metres for 100 km!).

The primary event will be run over 12 hours with options to start at 6:00 pm or 9pm. It will be supported by 6 hour options (6:00 pm or 3:00 am) and a 3 hour option (3:00 am Sunday).

Round 3 of The Hill Climb Challege is The Big Dipper, staged near Woodford. This round has a bit of a twist. Each lap has two climbs and two descents into the same valley (one on the way out and one on the way back) with all participants visible from all parts of the course - so everyone can share the struggle!

Participants can choose to take part in whichever event they please. The challenge offers a 3 hour solo event, 6 hour solo or team event, and lastly, the 12 hour solo or team event.

Inaugurally staged in 2010, the Wild Horse Criterium has become one of the most popular events on the SEQ trail running calendar.

With options for walkers, runners, hikers and children, there's truly something for everyone. The event was originally conceived as the ideal stepping stone for those transitioning from road or simply starting running - an ideal introduction to trail given the varying surface underfoot, it has also developed to included much for the more adventurous.

There are three options at 'ultra' distance that start during the night. Running in the dark under headlight is a fantastic experience and, if you're thinking about dipping your toe into the ultra scene, there's no better place to start.

[email protected] is a special race as a small donation from each registration will be made to Medicins Sans Frontiers Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in honor of Jill and Roger Guard who were enthusiastic advocates of MSF and, as we approach the fourth commemoration of the MH17 tragedy, its a good time to reflect on the struggle that still goes on in Ukraine and the tireless work that MSF do all over the world.

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.
