After confirming that the trail was actually open (there was a "TRAIL CLOSED" sign at the start), I headed off with my son, who joined me for the first 28km leg to Goomeri. The trail was in fairly good condition, but there was some disturbingly long grass on this section. It warmed up quickly, and I was happy to get through Murgon as it is less exposed after this. My husband crewed for the entire distance, riding with me for a section, with friends jumping in for the last half marathon, and my son re-joining for the last 11km. This was a great run and I'm grateful for all the support I received on the day.
