3 marathons in 3 days


3 Marathons in 3 Days

Race Founder, Larry Lawson, claims that this ultra-marathon came about ‘by accident’, as there was a “Run A Marathon in Three Days” event on the race calendar in Cairns in 2012, but Larry said “I’ll do Three Marathons in Three Days”, and soon he had enlisted other runners to join him. It is a popular event for those clocking up their marathons, and ultra-runners who want to give a stage race a go.

The 3 Marathons in 3 Days is a staged trail race in the tropical rainforests of Far North Queensland. It is run over three consecutive days over three different courses. This is the sixth year of the race that is held on the Atherton Tablelands. Transport is included in the race fee and provided from and back to Cairns Colonial Club Resort each day. There are two other events on the same weekend and over the same course, but with varying distances. The Cairns Marathon and the Kauri Half Marathon.
