The Airlie Beach Marathon Festival is held annually in one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world.
It is the Whitsunday’s premier running event and the largest onshore mass participation event in the region. It caters for athletes of all ages (0-100) and different levels of fitness.
The event has runs of varying distances from a one kilometre family fun run through to a full marathon. All these runs are off road along boardwalks and footpaths giving the participants breathtaking views over the ocean out to the famous Whitsunday islands. All events use the same course, providing spectators and supporters the opportunity of seeing their athlete on more than one occasion.
