Welcome to the 3 Marathons in 3 Days Website!
Trail running has been established in Far North Queensland thanks to the efforts of the Cairns Road Runners who has offered trail running events since 2006. The Three Marathons in Three Days is one of several Trail Running Events hosted by the Cairns Road Runners in Far North Queensland in 2013. There are regular training trail runs held on weekends.
The event is a 3-day stage race totalling 126.6 kms. Competitors who want to do only one marathon, can enter the Cairns Marathon – which is the same course, date and time as the third marathon of the 3 Marathons in 3 Days.
Please Note: Due to safety concerns, Juniors (under 18s) cannot compete in the 3 Marathons in 3 Days event.
There are no cut off set for each marathon, however the Race Crew reserve the rights to withdraw competitors from the course.
Minimum Impact Trail Running
The event showcases fantastic trail locations in Far North Queensland. Before, during and after each marathons, competitors, volunteers and supporters are encouraged to follow standard ‘leave no trace’ environmental guidelines. This is a requirement of the group activity permit and ensures the success of future permit applications. To reduce our carbon footprint, competitors are encouraged to make use of transport provided or organise to travel with fellow competitors.
