Scenic Rim Trail Running Series

Saturday, March 16, 2019


On The Edge Events (OTEE) is fellow local family owner/operator business, specialising in adventure endurance events around the Scenic Rim.

A new addition to their plethora of endurance adventures, Mt Barney Lodge is proud to announce that we will be the exclusive base for one of their four Scenic Rim Trail Running Series.

The series is a first for the Scenic Rim. Round one will be based in Kooralbyn, the second will be held at Bromelton, the third will be hosted by us at Mt Barney Lodge, and the fourth and final course will be near Wyaralong.

Set to be held on Sunday the 14th July, the Mt Barney course will skirt the national park showing off all our stunning views of the mountain.

Three different lengths of the course are going to be on offer for interested endurance runners; the Ultimate Direction Long Course ($50 entry) is a whopping 18km long. The next step down, their Topo Short Course ($40 entry) is 11km, with the shortest being the 5km Injinji Intro Course ($25 entry). Also run on the day is a 2km free Kids Course.

There is something for every level of runner in these events. Push yourself to the limits on the trails in the day and then come back to relax at Mt Barney Lodge. 

Snuggle up in one of our beautiful refurbished Queenslander Homesteads. Our Cabins are also a simple solution for your overnight stay. 

We have plenty of camping available, or avoid the set-up and pack-down of camping by staying in one of our ‘Glamping’ Camper Trailers

Make a weekend of your adventure, bring family and your #1 supporters out to stay at the lodge. Take a walk the day before and stretch those legs out before resting and preparing for the next day.You can even soak your weary muscles in our nearby waterhole and relax around a campfire at night. All accommodation and camping bookings are to be made through Mt Barney Lodge,

Along with the free kids’ races, stunning natural landscapes and friendly social atmosphere, OTEE boasts a fully marked, marshalled course with expert medical support on course and professional electronic timing and results. A photographer will be stationed along the course to capture your finest moments and there are opportunities to win random prizes at the after-race presentations.

The Scenic Rim Trail Running Series is an opportunity that we recommend you don’t miss out on! Trail running is a great way to get outdoors and active without needing specialty gear. Just bring out your shoes and best running attitude. Register to run with OTEE now.

We can’t wait to see you here!
