The 19th annual Somerset Rail Trail Fun Run or Ride will be held on Sunday 10 July 2022. This year’s event will see a slight change, with riders to now commence in Coominya.

The much-loved event will once again see participants run, walk or ride between Coominya, Lowood and Fernvale along the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail.

Somerset Regional Council Mayor and Chairperson of the Somerset Economic Development and Tourism Advisory Committee, Cr Graeme Lehmann said he was happy to the support the change and the inclusion of Coominya.

“It’s great to see Coominya included this year. The event was originally created for friends and family to enjoy the BVRT and recognise the connection between Lowood and Fernvale. It’s awesome for Council to now be able to extend this connection to Coominya”, Cr Lehmann said.

“We’re expecting about 300 riders to take off from the Coominya Memorial Park and finish at the Fernvale Sports Park. Along the way riders will get to enjoy the sites of the Lockyer Creek Railway Bridge, the beautiful Lowood gardens and the Brisbane River,” Cr Lehmann said.

To support the safe commencement of the ride, Main Street in Coominya will be closed between approximately 7.30am and 7.45am. Council will also be offering free transfer shuttles from the Fernvale Sports Park back to Coominya, with a bike trailer available to safely transfer bikes.
