BTU30

The Brisbane Trail Ultra 30 Course makes the most of the stunning single trails on Mount Coot-tha. Only 8km from the centre of Brisbane’s CBD and exciting South Bank attractions. 

The BTU30 course is designed for new trail runners and half marathon graduates who are stepping up to the next challenge and want to experience a taste of what it would be like to race on the trails or a full trail ultra marathon. 

It is also aimed at those who want to have a crack at the BTU-Red Bull Climb.

The BTU-Red Bull Climb starts at JC Slaughter Falls and climbs for 1700m to the top of the Pinnacles Trail where we will have a timing mat at the top of the climb to record the “Race within a Race”

The 30 km Course is designed to fit into almost everyone’s training or racing program. 

If the 30 km course is too much for you this time, don’t worry, just invite a trail running buddy to jump on your relay team and you can race for each other and enjoy the spectacular, vivid, city, South Bank Saturday sunset finish.
