7 Cairns Marathon
Event distances include the Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km and the 2km. Each road race will take in the best that Cairns has to offer. The event hub will become a hive of activity hosting running clubs, corporate teams and sponsors. On-course and post-race entertainment in Fogarty Park are an integral element of the participant’s overall event experience.
The 2km event allows parents with prams and wheelchair entrants to take part and enjoy the festival atmosphere. Race start times are scheduled to allow for parents to run the longer distances and then return in time to run with the kids and enjoy all the free fun in the family entertainment precinct.
With a distance to suit every ability and age group, this community-focused event caters to all those wanting to take part, including families and those with both physical and intellectual disabilities. Ronald McDonald House North Australia is the major beneficiary of this event helping to fund the Palm Cove family retreat.
This year the aim is for the event to generate funds for organisations such as major beneficiary Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and runners can use the event as a vehicle to fundraise for the charity of their choice.More Info
