To run where few people tread, to immerse yourself in nature both on land and underneath the water, to visit one of the world’s great natural wonders and throw in a race to boot. There’s plenty to like about the recently launched Whitsundays Tropical Trail Run Tour.

Spend six nights in tropical Queensland enjoying trails and tastes you’ve only dreamed of  before testing yourself with the Hamilton Island Hilly Marathon. Your hosts, Steve and Martin, will ferry you from one idyllic location to another across the week, you’ll get the chance to ‘find nemo’ and his friends, visit famous Whitehaven Beach as well as challenge yourself with a variety of distance options each day.

You’ll enjoy quality accommodation and mix with fellow trail enthusiasts. You’ll run a variety of trails, mostly single track, under the direction of experienced guides, amongst some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world, and still be able to return home to a soft bed, warm shower and quality dining options on Hamilton Island.

The Hamilton Island Hilly Marathon* will be just part of an amazing experience, but the memories of the quad-burning hills in this race will be washed away by the amazing vistas and friendships you’ll enjoy as part of this unique race experience and indeed your week long tour.

A labour of love for your hosts, Martin Lambert, a long-time sponsor and competitor of the Hamilton Island Hilly Marathon and Steve Jackson, the Race Director, both thought there was more to the Whitsundays trail scene that was worth sharing, including some virgin trail under construction, and wanted to share it with the world. Don’t just be a part of history, make some of your own by attending the inaugural Whitsundays Tropical Trail Run Tour.

*Half marathon and relay options available
