Participants from the Gold Coast to Gladstone are making their booking for Rainbow Beach in early November. We are told last year’s event saw over 100 runners converge on Rainbow – the first year of the race here. Held Sunday 4th of November 2012, races will be held over 3 distances and include beach and bush trails:
Trail/Beach run of 43kms (4:30am) (A cut-off will apply at the ocean side of the Leisha Track. Competitors not making this point by 08:30 will be directed back along the telegraph track. This is about 19kms into the race.)
Trail/beach run of 25kms (5:30am) The 25km run will go down the beach towards Double Island but turn back along the Telegraph Track at the Leisha track crossing. If the beach is impassable the race will go out and back along the Telegraph Track.
