Strap on a headlamp and run in the dark at Mt Beerwah. This popular event kicks off the trail-running season in Qld, enabling runners to enjoy their sport in the cool of night. If you have never run trail in the dark before, this event around the base of Mt Beerwah is the perfect introduction.
Beerwah@Night is the first 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.

Park on the verge behind the first car you reach, as car park access is restricted to event crew and members of the general public.
Do not park in the National Parks carpark, on the macadamia farm or across or in any private driveways.
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.
