Cairns 50 - Cairns 50 is a great event for those looking to take the step up in to ultra-running, or for experienced ultra-runners looking for an opportunity to smash their 50k PB.

10k - This is a PB 10k course! Race your heart out along 2 laps through Redlynch Valley or get out for a casual 10k run with friends and family. Or, a great course for first time 10k runners with flat paths, plenty of shade and with many sights to distract you along the way!
Saturday Family Fun Day - Bring the family along Saturday afternoon for 1k, 2k and 5k events to suit all members of the family. The kids will not only love the run and their finisher medal, but there will also be face painting, kids activities and the Cairns Endurance Sport Expo
