With the holiday season a somewhat distant memory, Those Guys turn their attentions to preparing their 2016-17 Season of events. With a veritable swag of events suitable for runners of all abilities, 2016-17 promises to be their biggest Season yet.
Events and opening dates for the upcoming Season of events are:
2015-16 Injinji Performance Products SEQ Trail Running Series
The second half of the 15/16 Season sees the distance of events extend out as we cover some sweet trails along the South-East coast of Queensland.
Jan 17 - Gold Coast Trail Running Series Rd 2 @ Numinbah
Jan 31 - Brisbane Trail Running Series Rd 3 @ Bunyaville
Feb 14 - Sunshine Coast Trail Running Series Rd 3 @ Mapleton
Feb 28 - Gold Coast Trail Running Series Rd 3 @ Hinze Dam
Mar 6 - Brisbane Trail Running Series Rd 4 @ Daisy Hill
Mar 20 | Up The Buff Trail Race
Now into its 4th year, 2016 should be a cracker! With the same 25km and 16km trail runs since its inception, Those Guys are operating on the "if it 'aint broke, don't fix it" approach.
Apr 10 | New Event - Details to come!
21km / 10km / 5km trail running events on new event terrain...
May 21 | Wild Earth Light It Up
Team relay running, on trails, at night. Fluoro, glowsticks and music. You know this one is as much about the party as it is about the run.
Sep 3 | Wild Earth Coastal High 50
The most talked about Queensland trail race in 2015, this epicly-awesomely-spectacular run is back in 2016 with an even more scenic first half of the course (how is that possible?), and the same iconic second 25km and finish as in its inaugural year. Running through heritage-listed Springbrook and Lamington National Parks, this event covers some of the most spectacular terrain encountered in a trail running event anywhere in Australia. Think we're overstating it? Speak to anyone who ran last year or, better yet, come and see it for yourself.
Even with a slight boost in permitted runner numbers, this event will again sell-out in quick time. You will want to get your entry in early or you WILL miss out.
