Trail run training in Brisbane

Join us at wild runners for even more trail training options.

Training Brisbane locals on the trails was only ever going to be a small part of Brisbane Running Tours; a side project to the main event. However, our love of trail running and coaching has proven too strong and Wild Runners has evolved into something wonderful which we’d love to spend a lot of time doing!

To avoid confusion for our out of town guests and to ensure our trail loving locals can stay informed, we’ve created a separate Web page, Facebook page and group solely for Wild Runners. If you’re at all interested in staying up to date with future training sessions, 6 week courses, trips away, trail suggestions and general running fun, we would love to have you visit our new web page, join our group and like our new page.

Thank you to everyone for your continuing passion and support. We can’t wait to meet lots more of you out on the trails!

At Brisbane Running tours, we love nothing better than getting out on the trails and running free. Trails offer the ultimate escape from our busy city lives; a chance to reconnect with nature. Escaping into the bush, enjoying the tranquillity and seeing the wildlife as you jog with friends is a return to our primal roots.

Everyone should give it a go!

The unknown can be daunting though and many runners don’t know where to begin when it comes to trails so we would like to be your stepping stone to a very rewarding style of running.

Our Run the Trails course will introduce you to a range of off road terrains, teach you good trail running technique and give you a taste of the ultimate challenge, night running!

Runners know the sport is a great way to make friends and trails are the  friendliest place of all. Our course will bring together up to 20 like minded individuals, allowing you to form lasting connections for those long runs or fun explorations you will no doubt end up doing in the future.

Best of all… the course fee includes entry into a real trail running event! You’ll get to put your new found skills to the test and have your first taste of all that off road racing has to offer. Trail runners run for the love of the trail, the freedom and the friends.

Give your feet a break from the concrete and experience something new with us.

All course participants receive:

- Two training sessions per week
– Run fitness training
– Trail technique education
– Core exercises
– Information about recommended gear
– Entry into a graduation event

Ideal for road runners looking for the next challenge. You should be able to run 6-10km (depending on the course) but speed is not important!

All of our trail training sessions are coached by a certified Athletics Australia and Triathlon Australia coach to ensure you are training in a safe, effective and supportive environment. Let us find the best in you and take you to the next level.
