Start Fundraising


2023 has brought a number of new partnerships one we are particularly excited about is a new partnership between Sixt, a leader in the car rental industry, and Atlas Events, owners of the Hobart, Brisbane, Cairns & Sunshine Coast Marathon Festival's. This partnership promises to bring many benefits to those travelling to each of the Atlas Events organised races and in need of car hire services.
Sixt will offer Atlas Events' customers access to a wide range of high-quality rental vehicles at unbeatable prices. From compact cars to luxury vehicles, the Sixt fleet of vehicles can accommodate every customer's specific needs. Additionally, their simple booking process and round-the-clock customer support ensures a smooth rental experience for all. This partnership will also unlock exclusive benefits for participants of Atlas Events, stay tuned for more information.
The partnership will also provide Atlas Events with reliable and high-quality transportation vehicles for all their event requirements, freeing up time to focus on producing the best event possible.
We are excited about the opportunities that this partnership brings and look forward to offering exceptional experiences for all those travelling to races and in need of car hire services. Sixt and Atlas will deliver high-quality and reliable car rental services and an enhanced race experience.

2023 Entries are officially open.

The fast, flat, multi loop course takes in the best of the picture-perfect Cairns Esplanade, the streets of Cairns and the memorable run down the epic finish chute alongside Fogarty Park.

What's your distance going to be in 2023? ⁠

Are you inspired enough to tackle a Full Marathon (42.2km)? ⁠

Maybe the flat and fast Half Marathon (21.1km) or something a little shorter, like a 10km is your pace. ⁠

For those just starting out a 5km run or 5km walk might be the perfect Sunday morning starter. ⁠

Something for the kids to join the challenge or to challenge you...the 2km Mini Marathoner dash has the fastest first 100m of any event.⁠

There is an event for all ages and abilities. Whether it’s the 5km walk, the marathon relay or the full marathon, lace up, grab a friend and get that Cairns finish line feeling in 2023.
