ABOUT 500 people from all levels of competitiveness will do 50km and 100km runs along the Hinterland Great Walk and its surrounds in Saturday's Blackall 100.

The spectacular rainforest scenery (pictured) will make for one of Australia's most spectacular running events, with the trails ideally suited to experienced and fun runners.

Entrants have 28 hours to complete the event.

The Blackall 100 will be hosted at the Mapleton campus of the Queensland Conference and Camping Centre, which offers outdoor education facilities and experiences in the heart of the Blackall Range.

This 3rd edition sees last year's winners of the 100km Troy Lethlean and Shona Stephenson, and 50km victors Scott Farrell and Danielle Gage all coming back to defend their titles.

With $1000 up for grabs in the 100km and $500 for breaking the record, there is set to be some stiff competition.

In a real coup for the Run Queensland team, the 2017 edition of the Blackall 100 has just been announced as the Australian National Long Trail Championship (100km event).
