2023 Entries are officially open

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.
