The inaugural 7 Cairns Marathon Festival (28 April 2019) will become a must-do destination event for all running and lifestyle event enthusiasts.
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.
Event distances include
- Half Marathon
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.
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.
There will be changed traffic conditions to ensure the safety of event participants. Please allow extra time if travelling to the Cairns CBD or airport. The following road closure will be in place.
