The 30th year anniversary of the Copperlode Cup is on Sunday, 22 April 2018; this 16km uphill road race is organised by the Cairns Road Runners.
This event has been postponed due to land slides. A new date will be contingent as to what/when the Council allows access to the road.
You haven't earned your Roadies tough badge if you've never completed this vertical course! That's right, not "undulating" but rather better described as "vertical". The course follows the road from the base of Lake Morris Road to the Dam Top.
