This magnificent trail running ultra takes you across the Blackall Range on the Sunshine Coast hinterland, experiencing vibrant ferny forests, subtropical rainforest, tall eucalypt trees, picturesque waterfalls and quiet hinterland hamlets. With strong ties to the local Indigenous tribe, this unbeatable event is loved as much for its tough terrain as its traditions.
