Update 3 of 3 (yet to be sent out)
This year we decided to include a shorter option on the Sunday, with competitors joining the other runners from Copperlode Dam to Goomboora Park on Lake Morris Road.
Unfortunately, in March, we had some major flooding in Cairns, resulting in the closure of Lake Morris Road. Cairns Regional Council withdrew our application to access the road for our event.
It took some time, but the road was finally opened again, and after another two weeks of emails back and forth, we finally received our Letter of No Objection from CRC last week.
We now also have our police permit, and the traffic control company is booked. So entries into the Lake Morris Race is now open, for anyone keen to come along for a road race on 15 July.
Our website and competitor information pack will be updated with the details of the race, but in short, transport is included in the race fee and the race will start at approximately 9.30am. There is a 5km climb out of the dam, but then it is mostly downhill to Goomboora Park, so be forewarned that you need to do some concerted downhill running and leg strength work at the gym before you turn up, or your quad and knees are going to take a bit of a hammering.

Aimed at the novice runner, these programs will support you to get to the start line and finish your race.
You can download our training programs free of charge, or help us out by making a donation!
Despite my best intentions, the training programs for 2018 3M3D will only become available in a couple of weeks! Sorry for the delay. The training programs are aimed at the novice runners only, the rest of you can sort yourselves out!
To get you started with your training, here are a couple of tips:
1) Over the next few weeks, build up your long runs to 20-25km.
2) Train at least 3 days a week, including a tempo run.
3) Do hill training at least once a fortnight, but more frequently, if you are not too tired.
4) Go to the gym and do strength work. If you don’t know what to do or how to do it, pay a PT to help you get set up with good technique. This does NOT count as one of your run days, it’s EXTRA.
