Cruise Whitsundays Airlie Beach Running Festival   

20 July 2014 

another successful event!


Based on the success of the 2013 Airlie Beach Running Festival and the support of our local community, plus a beautiful time of the year to be running in Airlie Beach (when it is cold in our southern states) we bring this event back again for all to enjoy.

This year we are very proud to welcome on board the major tour company in the Whitsundays – CRUISE WHITSUNDAYS - as our event sponsor. www.cruisewhitsundays.com

The event includes the ever popular Half Marathon (as Race 3 of 5 in the ANQ Half Marathon Series) plus the Port of Airlie 10km, Balance Podiatry 5km, and the 5km Corporate Team Challenge.

We are also proud to have on board, and to support our charity of choice ECO BARGE CLEAN SEAS Inc. and encourage you to include a donation to them when you register.  More information on www.ecobargecleanseas.org.au

All information, registration, discounted accommodation options, and package options are on the EVENTS page.

AIRLIE BEACH is the mainland coastal destination of the Whitsunday Islands, a beautiful tropical holiday destination, popular for sailing, diving and snorkeling;  positioned 150km north of Mackay and 300km south of Townsville.

Airlie Beach offers a beautiful environment in which to train, for both scenery and climate.  With the Conway State Forest on our doorstep, which boasts the challenging 28kmWhitsunday Great Walk, and the 74 Whitsunday Islands on our doorstep, plus the scenic Bicentennial Walkway in Airlie Beach, we are spoilt for choices.  Airlie Beach annual temperatures range from a minimum of 15 deg to 33 deg.
