Course Maps

The Brisbane Trail Ultra 60 km Course is a ITRA and UTMB registered event.

Its designed to help transition trail runners from a marathon to an ultra trail marathon then onto a 100 km trail ultramarathon. The course dives in and out of gruelling rainforest gorges, climbs along ridge lines with endless views of the expansive D’Aguilar National Park. The Brisbane Trail Ultra 60 km course flows around Enogerra and Gold Creek Reservoir before climbing up onto the grassing saddles of Mount Coot-tha.

On Mount Coot-tha the course follows some of the cutest single trails around with views of the Brisbane Skyline in the distance. The finish line is the reward for all the hard effort. The Team at the Brisbane Trail Ultra will be welcoming you in for a “hero ending” to an amazing ultra quest with a Queensland Maritime Museum South Bank Party. We know you are going to love the Brisbane Trail Ultra 60km marathon trail experience.

    1. Hi Stacey,

      Yes, please pick the wave that you think will suit your times the best. You can change at a later date. we are grouping our runners together so they all finish at a similar time and have a better finish line experience at the end of their event. I hope this answers your question. warmest regards
      Shona
