This year we have a new and much improved course with all events starting and finishing at the Port of Airlie. The longer events are both based on a 10.55km loop between the Port of Airlie and Cannonvale Beach; the Cruise Whitsundays Half Marathon is 2 loops and the Heart of the Reef Marathon is 4 loops. The shorter events are both based on a 5km loop between the Port of Airlie and Abell Point Marina; The Coffee Club 5km Fun Run is 1 loop and the Mantra Club Croc 10km Fun Run is 2 loops. The Whitsunday Times 2km Junior Dash and Turtle Club 1km Family Fun Walk are both based in the Port of Airlie precinct. These new courses will be amazing for runners and spectators alike with stunning views at all times and the opportunty for spectators to see a marathon runner up to eight times during the race.

As you will see, we have radically reduced registation fees this year in the hope this will enable more people from our community to participate. Your registartion fee will gain you race entry only; a race singlet, finisher medal and pasta party ticket are all optional extras that you can purchase during the registration process.
