For all races – road and trail – only ONLINE entries will be accepted. There are no ON-THE-DAY entries. This does not apply to practice runs and fun runs.

Cut off for registration on race day is 15 minutes prior to the start of road races and 30 minutes prior to the start of trail races. If you are late, you will miss out on your race as our volunteers are busy getting paperwork sorted and attending the mandatory race briefing.

Juniors/Super Seniors (16-17 yrs and 65+) can compete in trail races at the discretion of the Race Organisers, and through application at least two weeks prior to the event. Any juniors aged 16 or 17 who wish to participate in trail races (21.1km or shorter only), will be required to pay adult race fees for the event/s. It is a condition of junior entry that a parent/guardian is in attendance for the duration of the event – this adult cannot also be a competitor on race day.

To take advantage of the discounted rates for our Ultra Races, you need to be an APPROVED Cairns Road Runners member. This will require you to sign up as a club member at least 6 weeks prior to the event to ensure your membership is approved at the monthly management committee meeting.


Most CRR events have the following age categories: U12; 12-15; 16-17; 18-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; 70+. (Age is as of the 31st of December 2014).


Regular road races cost $10/adult member (Junior members free); independent runners: $15/adult or $5/junior.

Trail race prices vary depending on how early you enter and also the distance you are competing in.

Fun Runs usually cost $5/adult, kids free.
