CAIRNS HALF MARATHON

October 27

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Sunday 27th October 2019 – 7:00am

21.1km / 10km

A beautiful course set from Freshwater to Barron Gorge and return. Mostly flat with cool, shaded undulating hills in the Lake Placid section. The course is predominately on asphalt surface and involves a mix of running beside traffic on road shoulders as well as concrete multi-purpose pathways. Bring your favourite shoes for a fast finish.

Both events start at Ryan Weare Park, Freshwater and proceed toward the Red Beret Hotel before turning right at tram lines and alongside cane fields. Majestic and Hartley Streets lead you down to the Barron River where you follow the multi-purpose path to Lake Placid. The 10k turns around after 5k while the Half Marathoners continue, ultimately crossing the bridge adjacent to the Power Station on Barron Gorge Road before backtracking to the start with a short detour along Stoney Creek Road. NOTE:​ Course changes may be made due to permit requirements, please be attentive during pre-race briefing.

Hydration: A combination of water and sports drink spaced approx 2.5km apart is offered on both courses.

Wheeled Athletes:  Two locations are brought to the attention of wheeled athletes.  The intersection of Cowley/Harley St presents a risk in the form of tree roots and sand on the footpath outside the Peace Lutheran School.  A second location (21.1k only) is the turnaround area on the concrete path on Stoney Creek Road where the path is quite narrow and may limit some chairs from turning around.  Wheeled athletes are encouraged to view these two locations to determine their ability to negotiate them safely.

Prams:  Prams may be pushed by an entrant. However, attention is drawn to the information for wheeled athletes.  The larger wheeled transporters are recommended.

Time Allocation:  Conditions of statutory permits require the completion of the 10km in 3 hours and the Half Marathon in 4 hours. Consider your ability to complete the intended event within the relevant time.

ANQ Half Marathon Series:  The Cairns Half Marathon is a Cairns Road Runners event.   It forms part of the Athletics North Queensland (ANQ) Half Marathon Series.  Go to ANQ Half Marathon Series for more information. Entry to the series does not enable automatic entry into either of these two events. You must enter them separately.
