Welcome to the TRAQ's Camp Mountain Trails Challenge, which incorporates Queensland Athletics Queensland Mountain Running Championships and the Junior Trails Challenge for the 8 – 15 year olds.

The distances vary between 1 and 13.3km, are designed to suit different ages and consist of well-constructed forestry trails.

The 13.3km course incorporates the Queensland Mountain Running Championships for the 'Open' category, this distance aligns with the Australian and World Mountain Running Championships distances. Minimum age is 20 and the distance is not suitable for walkers; we expect you to be able to run at least all of the flat and downhill sections.

If you fall into a Masters category (over 34) you can opt to run in the 13.3km Open race, but then you forgo the chance to medal in the 8.3km Masters Championship Race.

The 8.3km includes the U20 and Masters Queensland Mountain Running Championships, but it is also open to 20 - 34 year olds as a non-championship run. This distance requires you to be at least 16 years old and is suitable for walkers; this distance should leave you enough time to reach the finish line before darkness falls.

The categories you are eligible for will automatically pop up for you when you register. Please note again that if you fall in a 'Masters' category you can opt to run in the Open category, which means that you forego the chance to medal in your Masters category.

Please note that you need to be a TRAQ and/or Qld Athletics member to take advantage of the discount, just type in MEMBER in the promotional code box. Please check that your membership is up to date. Non-members who register as members and not pay the full entry fee, may not be allowed to start.

Please check the event time table below for the start time of your event and note that all Junior Trails Challenges (for 8 – 15 year olds) are non-championship events.

Prizes: Medals are only provided for individuals in the championship categories (U20, Open, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64 and 65+ age groups), but there are prizes for the winners across the different distances.

  • Age groups are determined by the competitor’s age as at 31 December 2018 (i.e. year born), except for Masters.

  • Masters’ ages are taken to be as on the day of the competition.
