The Cairns Airport IRONMAN Cairns features an event for everyone, including Cairns Airport IRONMAN Cairns, Cairns Airport IRONMAN 70.3, Quicksilver Green Island Reef Swim, COUCH Charity Fun Run and an IRONKIDS Cairns Triathalon!
The iconic full-distance triathlon features a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike leg that travels one of the most scenic coastal roads in Australia towards Port Douglas and a 42.2km run that includes the Cairns Esplanade before finishing in the heart of Cairns.
Included is a four-day outdoor expo located on the Cairns Esplanade on the western side of the lagoon and is open to the public, supporters and participants.
The Race in Paradise earned a perfect satisfaction score from the athletes, with a spectacular bike course, terrific crowd and volunteer support, and a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef being standout aspects.
