Hamilton Island Endurance Series - Stamford Financial Hamilton Hilly Marathon

Description

Pristine white beaches. Crystal clear waters. A breathtaking mountainous interior. Hamilton Island is best known as a place to relax. But it is also the perfect place to push yourself in paradise.

The Hamilton Island Endurance Series spans four endurance events from May through to November each year. The Stamford Financial Hamilton Hilly Marathon, Great Whitehaven Beach Run, Fujifilm Hamilton Island Triathlon, Fujifilm Junior Triathlon and splash'n Dash and Fujifilm Whitehaven Beach Ocean Swim will test athletes on every level. Do them all or just do one. Race Hard. Recover Harder.

Due to the great success of the full marathon distance event in 2016, they will be continuing the Stamford Hilly Full Marathon in 2017. The challenging 42 kilometre route takes participants along roads, fire trails and walking tracks through Hamilton Island's undulating interior. There’s a race for everyone; the marathon for the fearless, a half marathon, a three by seven kilometre relay and three different distance options for the kids. This is a perfect challenge for the whole family.
