Sat-Sun 13-14 Aug LAMINGTON ECO CHALLENGE (QLD)
These events start and finish at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat located in the Lamington National Park. Competitors will have the option of 3 events. A 42 km Marathon or a 21 km Half Marathon distance or the FARA 8.5 km Fun Run on two consecutive days. To be in the running for age or category winnings you need to compete in the same event on both days. However there is a team option, where one person competes on one day and your team member competes on the other day. This will suit Mums and Dads with kids. There is also the option to compete in a single event, however this will not place you into a set category for overall placings. You do not need to be an elite athlete or champion runner to compete in the Lamington Eco Challenge. There is a 9 hour cut off on each day for the 42 and 21 km events, so there is plenty of time for anyone who has trained to have a go. contact: Meredith Tucker. email: meredith@gonyaadventures.com.au. Visit the website for more details.

Sat 3 Sep COASTAL CLASSIC (NSW)
The Coastal Classic is a 29km trail run along one of the most stunning tracks in Australia, it has everything to offer from rocky terrain, sand running and beaches, to cliff-tops, bushland, rainforest and steep hill inclines. The scenery is spectacular with breathtaking coastal views on the beach and from the cliff tops. You literally feel like you are a million miles from anywhere. Set amid one of Australia’s oldest and wildest coastal terrains, in fact it is the world’s second oldest national park (after Yellowstone in the U.S), the Coastal Classic is a trail run along the Coast Track from Otford to Bundeena. With 29km of trails, beaches, sand and rainforest – this race has a little bit of everything with great views to top it off! While the Royal National Park has long been used by runners, thanks to its beautiful scenery and easy access from Sydney’s Southern Suburbs, there hasn’t been a long trail race in the Park in recent years (apart from along Lady Carrington Drive). contact: Maximum Adventure. email: info@maxadventure.com.au. Visit the website for more details.
