Cairns Marathon 2017: Checkpoints

The purpose of the checkpoints is to ensure the safety of the competitors. Make sure the marshal records your time and race number when you come through a checkpoint. Failing to pass through a checkpoint or failing to stop to get your race number recorded will result in disqualification. Check the Checkpoints and Estimated Running Times document.

There are no drop boxes available for competitors. Competitors must carry their own gear.
