THE 18th annual Somerset Rail Trail Fun Run or Ride has been postponed until 2021. 

Somerset Regional Council has today made the difficult decision to postpone the popular running event, held on a section of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, until 11 July 2021.

Somerset Mayor Graeme Lehmann said Council was “holding on to hope” that restrictions pertaining to COVID-19 would have been eased but ultimately the safety of all participants is of most importance.

“Council has made this decision in line with the Queensland Government’s roadmap to easing restrictions and believes that this represents the most viable option for the event to successfully continue,” Cr Lehmann said.

“We recognise and appreciate the support and commitment of our sponsors and we thank them for their understanding.

“We also thank past fun run participants who were eager to join in on the fun again this year but we look forward to having everyone on board for a bigger and better event in 2021.”

Cr Lehmann encouraged everyone to still get out and enjoy the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail which is open every day of the year.
