Berrinba Wetlands is a man-made recreational park covering 120 ha along Scrubby Creek. Scrubby Creek joins Slacks Creek which enters the Logan River. The park contains 8.5 km of walkways and bike tracks, nesting boxes and substantial bridges.
The Logan Running Festival 2018 route will be a 7 kilometre track on winding cement and wooden bridge tracks, showcasing the natural beauty of the Wetlands.
In order to complete each race, competitors will be required to complete the following loops -
42klm - 6 laps of the circuit
21klm - 3 laps of the circuit
14klm - 2 laps of the circuit
7klm - 1 lap of the circuit
All competitors will have a timing chip built into their unique racing bib, and at the end of each lap, each competitor will receive a rubber wristband to keep track of how many laps they have completed.
There will be numerous water stations and first aide around the course, as well as DJ's to keep the vibe of the day pumping.
Commencing at 9am, the 1.15klm Fun Run for children between the ages of 4 years of age and 10 years of age on the event date, will be run on a slightly different course, purely in the interest of safety for all competitors.
The race will finish at the same spot as all of the races, however competitors will complete a slightly different route to the adult competitors. Competitors will start down in the park adjacent to the FINISH line precinct, run west through the Wetlands and loop back onto Wayne Goss Drive and through to the FINISH line.
There will be a Logan Running Festival volunteer running this course with the children and parents, and there will be plenty of signage on the day.
Each FINISHER of this particular race will receive a Logan Running Festival trophy, a FINISHER's visor, the standard LRF race pack and their unique personalised racing bib.
