Enjoy a different day out in the country and run or walk the trails beside Lake Manchester, just west of Mount Crosby. There are three options: a 6km run or walk beside the lake, a 10km run/jog/walk or the more challenging 22km run adding upper Cabbage Tree Creek, creek crossings and hills. All runs are on well-marked earth forestry trails.
From Brisbane take the Western Freeway from Mt Cootha, turn off onto Moggill Road then Mount Crosby Road, continuing to the t-intersection with Lake Manchester Road. Turn right onto Lake Manchester Road for 10km. Drive carefully on the last 3km of unsealed road. Drive time to allow for: 35 minutes from Mt Cootha/Western Freeway in light traffic. Allow more for later fun run/walk start. Allow time for registration, race number collection and getting ready.
6km trail walk/fun run: Head up past the dam from the reserve, along west side of lake and turn right onto grassed track around headland, rejoin main track and return on same route. 22km trail run: From the reserve, up past the dam and alongside left/west side of lake. Clockwise around the loop at far end of lake including four river crossings, then return back up the western shore of lake again to the start/finish. 10km course description will follow soon.
