Barron Gorge Trail Race

Sunday, 6 May 2018

Stoney Creek, Kamerunga, Near Cairns, QLD

Run/Walk Off Road/Trail

The Barron Gorge Trail Run is at Kamerunga near Cairns, Queensland on Sunday, 6 May 2018.

Please note this event is on 6 May, not 7 May as showing on the Cairns Road Runners calendar.

A tough trail, don’t let the distance fool you. Best to be self-sufficient on this race and take a picnic – you may be out there longer than expected. Starting at Stoney Creek Road, the only way is UP!

There are usually a few tears on the first 2km, but once you hit the ridge at Speewah it’s a scenic loop round to the top of the mountain with a rewarding steep descent back down over the iconic Kuranda Railway. Strap your ankles and take a camera for pics of the natural spectators along the track. Not easy but a great course on your backdoor step.

This event is trail running at its best with challenging inclines, free flowing and technical declines, creek crossings; and almost all through scenic rainforest and eucalypt bush. The tracks follow those used by the First Australians and later European pioneers.
