Queensland Athletic League Inc racing since 1880

Welcome to the official site of the Queensland Athletic League (QAL)! The QAL organises professional running events across Queensland. Races are run under a handicap system, usually over distances ranging from 70 metres to 1600 metres.
Handicap racing is designed to ensure that every athlete has a chance to win ! Runners are handicapped according to their ability which ensures that racing is close and more importantly exciting for both participants and spectators. While the big gifts offer thousands of dollars in prizemoney, there are many races where the prizemoney is a few hundred dollars.
