Welcome to Bunyaville Trail Runners & Bunya Belles. We have been running together since early 2010. With a booming SEQ trail running scene, now is the time to see what all the fuss is about! Bunyaville Conservation Park is located just 15km North-West of central Brisbane between the suburbs of Albany Creek and Everton Hills. Now you can get away from it all without leaving Brisbane! We welcome you to come experience day & night trail running with a friendly, fun and supportive trail running group. Experienced local runners will guide you through nature’s playground that is Bunyaville.

BUGGER RUN! CAMP MNT MONDAY 19 NOV. 5.30PM

 

Our first ever night BUGGER RUN is this Monday 19th November. Start at 5.30pm aprox 14km but takes over two hours due to the steep hills. One hill while only just over 300mtr long has approx 90mtr elevation gain. We start on a 300mtr elevation climb to the top of Camp Mnt to take in some spectacular views of Brisbane & it’s surrounds. Water & headlamp is a must. This is the toughest training run we do. No one has run this twice with me. I think Brad will be the first. There is two chicken out points on the steep stuff on the out & back section. First before we head down & second is at the creek as we head up to Mt Nebo Rd. Depending on time & runners fitness we can do   a final climb up the mnt the long way or take the Link Rd back. See you there 🙂

New T-Shirt Designs

Full steam ahead with getting new t-shirts. Thanks to Brad for pointing me in the right direction. The business is You Can Run a small company that looks after runners. They also do the tees for Park Run. They will also host our tees so after the initial batch anyone can order more whenever they want. No minimum order. They can also personalize with your nickname if required – cool. May see about coffee mugs too and just order if you want one.

Because shirts will be sublimated, the colour needs to be white with or with a red strip. I will post final mock-up after approval. Price is reasonable with first batch subsidized from our Glasshouse 100 checkpoint duties. As promised, those who lent a hand ( 5 x runners) will receive a free shirt 🙂 for their generous use of their time & resources.

Trail Run Mag – submitting a Trail Guide, Club “about us”, TRAQ report

Looking at submitting a “BUGGER!” or a Wed Night Bunyaville run report/guide to Trail Run Mag http://www.trailrunmag.com/for them to publish. Camp Mnt has some great views & points of interest ie. Camp Mnt Train Crash from 1947http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_Mountain_rail_accident part of the run on Qld Mnt & Aust Mnt running course, Bellbird Grove, previous mining in the area, Battersby lookout & those “BUGGER” hills. Bunyaville has WW2 Bunker, great walking tracks, education centre, Dams plus gives us a plug as well.
I’ll let everyone know so we can get a HUGE turnout for photos 🙂 Also will do a short video of the day. Also asked about submitting a Club report & TRAQ info as well.
cheers
