If you’re interested in a true marathon challenge whilst in a beautiful location, it simply doesn’t get better than this. The trail will take you through the stunning Blackall Range, home to lush green forests, subtropical forests, incredible waterfalls, and charming hamlets. In addition, the Blackall Range is also strongly linked with the local Indigenous tribe because it functioned as a gathering place for them for thousands of years. All that makes this a spectacular marathon to be a part of, in more ways than one.

The Blackall 100 has several events, though its primary is the 100km, followed by a 50km and a 21km half marathon. The 100km and 50km races begin and end at the QCCC, while the 21km starts at the Baroon Pocket Dam and finishes at the QCCC.

Bus services will be available for the participants, with parking spots in the Mapleton Community Hall on Obi Obi Road. The three-day event has ample races so that runners, as well as hikers and walkers, can all join in on a massive ultra-marathon in some of Queensland’s most pristine locations. Those who win get to ring the legendary Blackall Bell at the finish line too!

Interested participants should also take note of the mandatory gear required for the race. These items should be carried with you at all times: for all races, your mobile phone, course map, race bib, at least 1.5 litres of water, and a compression bandage. Other gear required for the 50 and 100km include headlamps and a high visibility vest that meets Australian standards.

The Blackall 100 is an iconic marathon event in Australia that you should put on your bucket list today.
