For many years, SRG has supported Trail to Triumph (TTT) as the groups principally supported charity, and 2018 is no different.
Last weekend, in support of this year's Trail to Triumph fundraising effort, the 'Spirit of SRG' was on display at Bunnings at Springfield Central, where many SRG members, along with some of the TTT runners, combined to sell sausages and drinks, where all proceeds from the day are dedicated to go directly to Trail to Triumph.
I am so proud to announce the result of the day has seen
$2,065.30 donated from SRG directly to Trail to Triumph.
Thank you to everyone involved, both those involved in the planning and the execution on the day, and to those who came along and bought a sausage or two!
There are more events planned over the coming weeks to support TTT, including support runs with some of the TTT runners, giving SRG members a real chance to get up close to some of the ultra marathon runners before the big weekend to wish them well during an actual run!

For those who aren't aware, Trail to Triumph is group of people led by Mat Britton who run an Ultra Marathon (250km) to raise much needed funds for Mesothelioma. Every dollar counts and by donating to Trial to Triumph we help to build the awareness of Mesothelioma and it’s severity to those affected.
The Trail to Triumph Journey, fondly known as ‘Tony’s Journey’ was created in memory of Tony Britton who lost his battle with Mesothelioma. A rare and currently incurable cancer caused by asbestos, his son Mat Britton has since founded ‘Trail to Triumph, an annual event which tackles the arduous terrain, running 250 kilometres, to commemorate the life of his dad and raise funds and awareness of Mesothelioma.
On October 12 2018, Trail To Triumph will start in Moranbah in central Queensland before sun up and the runners will head towards Eungella and up the range, aiming to get at least 100km in the first day. Day 2 will be hot and painful, running on red dirt roads under a baking hot sun. Again they will aim to complete at least 100km allowing them to finish Day 3 with a shorter 50km session.
Awesome work SRG!
