Event Details

The Whitsunday Trail Fest 2023 is an exciting event that offers a variety of race categories, including the challenging WTF58 Shokz Ultra Trail, the WTF28 Accom Whitsunday Trail, the Honeyeater Ray White Challenge 10.5k, the Kids Beach Run, and the Tarkine Survivors Beach Bash.

Participants can register and collect their race packs on September 9, with the event starting on September 10 at Conway Circuit, part of the Conway National Park ranges.

The course is tough and demanding, with a combination of fire trails and narrow walking tracks, including some very steep sections on dirt and rock, and sections that are rough underfoot.

The remote sections of the trail may result in slower first aid and rescue response times, making it essential for participants to be experienced trail runners and sufficiently skilled and trained to undertake the event.

The age requirement for all race categories is at least 18 years old except for the Kids Beach Run, which has an age requirement of 4 years old, and the Tarkine Survivors Beach Bash, which requires participants to be at least 14 years old.

It is the responsibility of the participants to ensure that they are fit enough to complete the event and in good health, with no illness that may hinder their ability to finish the race.
