The current edition of this event is on 19 August 2018.

Run the Great Whitsunday Trail takes you on a 28.7km or 57.4km journey through Conway State Forest in Queensland from Saturday, 23 September to Sunday, 24 September 2017.

Please note that the 57.4km ultramarathon has been cancelled for 2017 only, due to cyclone damage on the tracks.

The 57.4km distance is the shorter distance out and back and was introduced in 2016 to celebrate the event's 10th anniversary. This iconic event was formerly "Run the Whitsunday Great Walk" and was organised by Mackay Road Runners. It is now under the new name of "Run the Great Whitsunday Trail" and is organised by Whitsunday Running Club.

Two new events have been added in 2017 on the Saturday: a 4.5km Rookies Trail Run, and 2km Kids Trail Run, based from the BIG4 Airlie Cove Caravan Park.
