After the overwhelming success in past years, Wondai, a little town with a big heart is hosting the next Country Running Festival 25-26 June 2022. We very much hope you can join us, and we hope to make the weekend enjoyable and fun for the whole family.
Thanks to our sponsors. We appreciate your continued support.
Just like last year you have the choice of either 11.1 km or 21.1 km on Saturday afternoon and three choices on Sunday morning of 10km, half or full marathon. So you can make your own ‘Doubleup option’ and for every runner who does a Saturday afternoon trail run and Sunday morning run we will give you a bottle of local wine or Plenty Oils or a big bag of peanuts! Doubler gifts will be handed out at bib pickup.
All events start in the centre of Wondai township ( there is plenty of free parking- but please be considerate of locals ) on the South Burnett Rail Trail just behind the Wondai Town Hall.
Saturday morning will have a 1km ‘Dash for Cash’; 1km ‘All Abilities Race’ and 2 km ‘Family Fun run’ all other events please register online.
There is a choice of two Forest Trail runs on Saturday afternoon: 21.1 km starting at 12.30 pm or 11.1 km starting at 1.30 pm. The 21.1 km event will be part of the Trail Runners Association of Queensland calendar of events. https://traq.org.au for points towards their event series.
The 11.1 km and 21.1km Saturday afternoon Forest trails will be a cross-country trail run, starting on the rail trail.
The Marathon, Half marathon and 10 km Rail trail on Sunday will all be on the South Burnett Rail Trail which has a fully sealed bitumen surface. The road crossings will be manned by the SES- please give them a wave. First aid facilities will be available in Wondai and on the courses.
There are regular toilet facilities and drinks stations along the way.
All start points are within walking distance of the centre of Wondai.
