Sunday 8th September 2024

The Anaconda Whitsunday Trail Fest 2024, will be in it’s 18th year from it original concept by the Mackay Road Runners in 2005 when they introduced the 28km trail event. The event is now brought to you by the Whitsunday Running Club, who has been organising this event for the last 9 years. Over those years, the event has grown from the original 28kms. To now include the Ultra 58km, Honeyeater Challenge, the Kids Beach Run and Survivors Beach Run, with runners running along Airlie Beach foreshore. 

The event is planned to be held on Sunday 8th September 2024.

It is a beautiful time of the year to be running the trail in the Whitsundays. While visiting the Whitsundays, it would be a great opportunity for you to extend your stay and holiday in paradise and explore all that the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef has to offer. The course runs through the beautiful Conway Circuit, which is part of the Conway National Park ranges.
