Mt Beerwah, Sunshine Coast
Run with the rising sun around the base of Mt Beerwah, known by the local indigenous tribes as the pregnant mother of the Glass House Mountains. This event always tests runners with its tough terrain and unpredictable conditions. Sprint, jog or hike; this is perfect race for beginners through to elite.
Beerwah@Daybreak is the final event in the Run Qld Day-Night Series. Complete all four events to automatically qualify for the series.
Interesting fact: The Aboriginal people tell a story of the Glass House Mountains of which Tibrogargan is the father, Beerwah the pregnant mother and Coonowrin the son who betrayed his parents.
This event is staged at the base of Mt Beerwah consisting of three races.

All checkpoints will have water, electrolyte, some lollies, fruit and small snacks but will have no cups.
Run Queensland are committed to preserving the environment in which we are privileged to stage our events.
With this in mind, we no longer provide disposable cups at checkpoints.
As such, participants will need to carry their own cup for drinks they don’t want to put in their hydration pack or water bottle (coke, electrolyte).
Our ‘no cup’ initiative has been a huge success since implementation in 2015 with the combined waste from checkpoints being greatly reduced.
