The Lamington Eco Challenge from Saturday, 5 August to Sunday, 6 August 2017 is a trail running event featuring some tough terrain in the Scenic Rim Hinterland in South East Queensland, including four wheel drive tracks, grassy paddocks, bush and rainforest walking trails as well as having to negotiate creeks, gates, cattle grids and the potential wandering livestock.
This event is not being run in 2018, but should return in 2019. See the new Waterfall Trail Runs for an alternative event by G'onya Adventures, which is being held around the same time of year.
This event starts and finishes at O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat, Villas and Lost World Spa located in the Lamington National Park. Competitors will have the option of either a 42km Marathon, 21km Half Marathon or 8.5km distance on two consecutive days.
