The Brisbane Trail Ultra 2019 is looking for sponsors like you to be involved with us in our first year hosting this exciting trail running festival.

The Brisbane Trail Ultra has been developed by ultra marathon trail running champion, Shona Stephenson and her team of experienced trail runners. We believe our Brisbane Trail Ultra will become a premier trail running event over the next few years and we are offering you the opportunity to be part of it all.

Our Race Ambassadors

Ben Duffus, Alana Vought and Karen Barrett will be carrying the flag for us as our inaugural Brisbane Trail Ultra race ambassadors and we are very proud to have such an amazing team of elite athletes represent us.  Local Brisbane trail running legend Ben Duffus boasts many local and international podiums on the Ultra Trail World Tour and Sky Running Tours, and has represented Australia on 7 occasions. Ben is also our keynote speaker at the pre-race media conference.  Alana Vought is our Gold Coast trail running legend that has come off a stellar year of ultra-trail achievements.  A few highlights include first places at the Brisbane Rail Trail 50km, Coastal High 50 and Blackall 100.  Karen Barrett flies the flag for us as our interstate ambassador, although we still claim her as a Queenslander.  Karen is the founder of Tail Runners and has notable wins at the Buffalo Stampede Grand Slam and ANZAC Solo 150km.

“The Brisbane Trail Ultra and Festival is unique. Where else in the world can a trail runner enjoy such stunning sub tropical rainforest trails, beautiful views and massive climbs and be so close to a capital city and an international airport?” Shona Stephenson Brisbane Trail Ultra and Festival Co Founder

What we can offer you

The team at Brisbane Trail Ultra know how beautiful Brisbane is and we take every opportunity to help showcase this to the running community.  We are looking for sponsors that share our passion for nature, for trail running and for Brisbane.

The Brisbane Trail Ultra will be supported by our three-day run festival which aims to provide a celebratory atmosphere for all involved at the finish line.  We believe there is no better place to cross the line than in the glitz and glamour that is Southbank, Brisbane.  There are opportunities at the festival to be on the ground and mingling with runners and festival goers alike.

Our team is working hard to promote the BTU on social media platforms, Facebook and Instagram.  We would ensure our sponsors reap the full benefits of our social media followings long before the event.

We are offering a wide range of sponsorship opportunities so please become involved. We are also inviting sponsors to contact us to discuss tailored sponsorship options. Please feel free to contact us.  We look forward to building strong relationships with you and in doing so, provide our trail running adventurers from Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific the best race experience possible.

“Our Brisbane Airport is just 20 minutes from the finish line and our finish line is nestled at Southbank Brisbane right at the feet of 5 star luxury hotels”. Shona Stephenson Co Founder Brisbane Trail Ultra and Festival

We look forward to hearing from you soon and please do not hesitate to contact our team on or our Contact Page to organise a time to run you through this unique opportunity.
