The R and R Rail Trail Experience are a range of duathlon events (run and ride) on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail (BVRT) starting and finishing at the Blackbutt Showgrounds.
The events derived from the passionate BVRT Ambassadors. The Ambassadors are local volunteers who love and help look after this section of the BVRT. The original train line was built in the 1880’s to transport timber, milk and beef to Brisbane and to supply farmers and rail towns. The last service was in 1989. But the rail trail is now a thriving public thoroughfare for walkers, runners, bike riders and horse riders.
The R and R duathlon events encourage participants with all abilities and to part, especially newcomers to the sport. The day is a great rural festive day of exercise and friendship.
