That Dam Run – Biloela’s First Running Event
June 16 @ 6:30 am - 12:00 pm
Biloela first ever running event is finally here! Bought to you by the Biloela Kindy this (hopefully annual) event showcases landmarks unique to Biloela, utilizing the usually restricted dam wall as majority of the course. Visitors and locals alike can take advantage of this opportunity to view Callide Dam and Callide Power Station from this rare vantage point.
The event features a 2 km, 5 km, 10 km and 15 km course, catering for all capabilities and energy levels! The 2 km track will consist of a 1 km loop along the Dam wall, while the 5 km, 10 km and 15 km courses will comprise of a 5 km loop (including 4 km of the wall per loop). The course is predominately gravel with only 1 km of bitumen. It is a relatively flat course, with gentle rises and falls. Run or walk, this course will be enjoyed by all for its views of iconic Callide Dam and surrounds.
Looking for some team rivalry? The ‘Battle of the Schools’ for 12 yrs and under will see teams of five run a 5 km relay race. Adults can choose to compete in the ‘Corporate Challenge’, with teams of three, over the same 5 km course. Strategy will be key as teams decide the runner’s order and starting points and distances. Each team needs to design and bring their own baton to show your team colors. No restrictions on the number of teams per school or business. Turn up the heat in pursuit of the coveted team challenge trophy.
what else will there be to see?
Spectators too will be kept entertained with great view of the course, coffee van, jumping castle, face painting, bacon, sausage and eggs breakfast available, home-baked goods and an array of market stalls. This event promises to be a great morning out. With a prize pool of $2,280 + product, it will be well worth travelling for.
