Training Times

The Bunya Belles runs are usually organised every second Sunday from various trails from D’Aguilar National Park to the Glasshouse Mnts. There are many pop up runs as we encourage members to seek out company on the trails and there is also a regular Thursday morning interval session at Bunyaville. Check their facebook group for details.

Tuesday – 5:30pm – Bunya PB Training Squad – (Mixed group run). Suitable for all levels from beginner to elites. Run by qualified Athletics Australia – Level 1 Run Leader Grant. This interval session is run over the Bunyaville parkrun course at varies speeds, hills and distance. A great workout to achieve that allusive PB. From April to September the group locates to Lemke Park, Albany Creek.

Wednesday – 5:30pm – Bunyaville Trail Run Adventures – (Mixed group run). An intermediate group that runs 10-12km covering all areas of Bunyaville Conservation Park.
