Three Marathons in three days

July 13, 2018 - July 15, 2018

The 3 Marathons in 3 Days is a staged trail race in the tropical rainforsets of Far North Queensland. It is run over three consecutive days over three different courses. This is the seventh year of the race that is held on the Atherton Tablelands.

There are two other events on the same weekend and over the same course, but with varying distances: the Cairns Marathon and the Kauri Half Marathon.

Early Bird entries end at 12.00am on 19 April 2018. Late Fees apply from 12.00am 21 June 2018. Registrations close 12.00am, 28 June 2018.

We encourage all competitors to stay at the Cairns Colonial Club Resort, 18-26 Cannon Street, Manoora, Cairns. Transport is included in the race fee and the bus departs from and returns to Cairns Colonial Club Resort. No public transport is available to the event and taxi fares will be too high. A portion of the race entry fees are being donated to a local charity.
