Hullo there trail runners

Welcome to the TRAQ newsletter. Hope you have had a great summer break and getting into some serious trail running now most of the heat has gone.

The newsletter will be changing format slightly - no more PDF files, it will be delivered now only through email like this - with connections to Facebook as usual.
This edition just has some a small amount of information - which we hope is timely and useful. Stay tuned for more information in the next one.

We are wanting your submissions for the newsletter. These include the upcoming events and races you would like us to mention to everyone, stories from your races and runs, and pictures and videos if you have them.

I hope you have a great week - and see you on the trails.

The Sponsorship Consultants Seminar

There is an abundance of sponsorship out there for athletes of all why do so many struggle to get it?
In this 1.5 hour seminar you will learn what it takes to engage, maintain and retain great sponsorships.
Sponsorship is NOT just for the elites! Some of the most valuable sponsorships are obtained by athletes who are not podium finishers.....but know how to engage in meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with their sponsors.
Learn from the experts who successfully engaged over $170,000 of sponsorship for a single athlete in 2012/13, and have worked on both sides of the table....with athletes and also with the corporate organisations who sponsors them.

Ashgrove Rangers Bellbird Trails Run

The event is organised by the Ashgrove Rangers. It also incorporates the Queensland Mt Running Champs, so it is a Queensland Athletics endorsed event.
This year they have changed the name to Bellbird Trails Run (previously known as the Qld Mountain Running Champs) to stress that your regular trail runner is part of the target group of participants. (ie you don't need to be a champ to enter, you just need to have trained appropriately, so that you can complete the course without doing damage to yourself)
The event will be held on the trails of Bellbird Grove/Camp Mountain at D'Aguilar National Park, just beyond The Gap.
Date: pm Sat 12 July
Distances: 8km for women and (junior) men, 4km for junior women...... we may do the 13km for the senior men, but that makes it a very tough event (shortish but tough).

Please remember to send your submissions in for the next newsletter. We want stories from your event!
