The CANEGROWERS Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival is the adventure marathon event of the calendar year. Held in Port Douglas, Queensland, the Festival offers a range of adventure courses like no other including a 74km JCU Ultra Marathon; a 42.2km adventure marathon; 21.1km adventure half marathon; as well as a 10km, 5 km and 2.5 kilometre distance.
