Five events

Long, short and intro distances

Scenic Rim | Queensland | Australia


The Scenic Rim is trail running at its finest … because #bitumenisboring!


Queensland's Scenic Rim has been the trail running world’s best-kept secret – until now.


The Scenic Rim Trail Running Series is the first of its kind in the area. Spectacular and rugged, the Scenic Rim is just an hour’s drive south of Brisbane and 40 minutes from the Gold Coast. Mountains, forests, lakes, single track, dirt, expansive views, wildlife – the Scenic Rim Trail Running Series will take you through it all in five challenging and highly rewarding events.


Run one event or run them all and be in the running for series champion (FAQ's) .


You don’t need to be an elite to enter the Scenic Rim Trail Running Series – the long and short-distance events are open to seasoned runners and first timers alike. We will also be running 5km introductory distances for those who are new to the sport. No matter which distance you choose, our welcoming and family-oriented atmosphere will ensure you make it to the finish line wanting more!


Over five different locations, you’ll get to explore some of the toughest and most magnificent trail running terrain in Australia. Forget the latest gear – all you need is a come-and-try attitude, a sense of humour and bit of fitness to get around the course.


Kids are catered for, too, with a 2km kid’s fun run at each event.


The Scenic Rim Trail Running series includes:


  • Two course options (short and long) that are fully marked and marshalled

  • On-course medical support

  • Professional electronic timing and results

  • Photographer along the course to capture your finest moments

  • Random prize draws at the race presentations

  • Kids races

  • Magnificent natural landscapes

  • Friendly, social atmosphere

So, come and see what all the excitement is about! We can’t wait to see you!

What is trail running?


Trail running loosely refers to any running that takes place off-road, including fields, dirt tracks, lush forests, coastal paths and rugged mountainous areas. It is suitable for all levels of running ability due to the infinite number of routes to choose from.


Some trail running terrain is classed as “technical,” with slippery roots, loose shale, rocks, mud, sand and other obstacles to negotiate, while other terrain is less taxing. It can include steep gradients, undulating trails and relatively flat trails.


Due to the challenging nature of trail running, walking and hiking is absolutely permitted!  


Trail running is even said to have a number of health and strength benefits over road running, thanks to the varied running surfaces.


There is a plethora of trail running gear available, but for our events, all you need are comfortable running clothes and shoes. You may want to use a hydration vest, particularly for the longer-distance events, or use a hand-held water bottle. There will also be water on the course.
