Get ready to lace up your running shoes and embrace the great outdoors because the Box Gully Trail Run is back. After the success of last year’s inaugural event, this year’s trail run promises to be even bigger and better, with more trails and exciting activities for the whole family. Mark your calendars for Sunday, July 23 as the picturesque Box Gully, located on May Downs Rd, becomes the backdrop for a day of thrilling races and community camaraderie.

Participants will have a range of trail options to choose from, catering to different fitness levels and preferences. Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just looking for a fun-filled family outing, there’s something for everyone. The trail distances include 2km, 5km, 10km, 20km, and 40km, winding through the stunning landscapes of Box Gully’s tableland and brigalow country. For those seeking a competitive edge, relays and timed racing categories are available. It truly is an all-ages and all-abilities event, promoting inclusivity and healthy living within the community.

What makes this event even more special is that all funds raised will go towards supporting the Middlemount Community Sports Association (MCSA). By participating in the Box Gully Trail Run, or making a donation, you are directly contributing to the growth and development of MCSA, ensuring that they can continue to deliver exceptional sports experiences to the community.

If you’re excited about the Box Gully Trail Run and want to be part of this fantastic community event, there are numerous ways to get involved.

Last year’s Box Gully Trail Run was a tremendous success, attracting 150 enthusiastic participants and raising close to $7,500 for MCSA. These funds were crucial in improving MCSA’s infrastructure and benefiting the wider community. With your support, this year’s event is poised to be even more impactful, empowering MCSA to continue its outstanding work in fostering community sports and engagement.
