Paluma Dam Good Trail Run near Townsville, Queensland

The Paluma Dam Trail Run has changed for 2016, with a new course starting and finishing at the village green in the Paluma township, north west of Townsville, Queensland.

There is an array of trails around the village crossing creek, passing waterfalls and lookouts. Paluma is cooler than the coastal region and it makes for great trail running in October.

There is a 6km short course, 10km intermediate course, and 20km long course. Trail running comes with some risk, running in the rain forest and on remote takes a certain skill and fitness level. Please make sure you are up to the distance you wish to run.
