The Cairns 50 Ultra course is the perfect first time ultramarathon course for those looking to make the step into ultra running. The flat looped course with plenty of aid stations provides a safe and supportive environment for tackling the 50km distance without the worry of trails or hills! For experienced ultra runners, the Cairns 50 is an ideal opportunity to see just how fast you can go! No doubt the Cairns 50 is a PB 50km course. So why not come and see how fast you can go?
The Cairns 30 is the perfect stepping stone for those thinking about making the leap from the half marathon to the full marathon. It provides the chance to test run the longer distance with an event atmosphere and hundreds of other runners over a 3 x 10km course.
The 10km event is a great introduction to the 10km distance for those stepping up from shorter fun runs or Park Run. Being flat and with plenty of friendly support out on the course, the 10k will fly by. For experienced runners, the 10k is fast with flat paths and minimal turns. This truely is a 10k PB course so lace up those carbon fibre plated shoes and get ready to run...FAST!
The Family 5.5k run/walk takes in all the scenery of the Cairns Esplanade over a flat and safe course which is perfect for all members of the family, including all ages and parents with prams. It's flat and fast too for those wanting to test their limits.
