Sunday 16 July 2006
Dayboro to Woodford Relay 2006.

The second running of this event was held on Saturday July 15th 2006. Organized by Bruce Cook and the Caboolture Road Runners the event attracted 8 teams from South East Qld. Teams are invited to field 6 runners who each run two of 12 set legs of the 74km event. Organizers and athletes alike were not complaining about the light showers that occurred throughout the day, temperatures were ideal for running and any relief from the drought was considered a plus.
The race started in front of the Old Dayboro pub winding its way to the base of Mt Mee and a breakfast stop before the steep accent to the Gantry and on through the state forest. Caboolture Road Runners men's team took an early lead but Toowong Athletics put in a strong leg up Pegg's road to edge in front. The race between the ladies teams was contested between Caboolture Road Runners Ladies and Run Inn Girls with the locals taking an early lead. Minor places were also hotly contested during the descent to D'Aguilar, through the Glass House Mountains and into Woodford. Final places were not decided until the last leg, a 3km criterion held at Woodford show grounds.
End results as below.

Organizer Bruce Cook saw a need for this event when the annual Caboolture to Maleny relay was discontinued in 2003 due to safety concerns with the ever increasing traffic on the course.
The advantage of this event is that it is held almost exclusively in state forest and National Parks. It is hoped that the event will grow over the coming years to be as popular as the former event, although run as it is through forests their will be a cap on the number of entrants allowed.
