- Description: Half the distance, half the pain on the same great course as Cairns Airport Challenge Cairns! The 2.80.20 Cairns will replace the previous Cairns Half event and will be held on Sunday 3 June 2012 as part of the 2nd annual Cairns Airport Adventure Festival.
The switch from last year's Cairns Half (1.9km swim, 90km cycle, 21.1km run) to the more high profile long course race (2km swim, 80km cycle, 20km run) will elevate the status of the race and ensure it has its own profile.
2.80.20 Cairns competitors will start and finish before the Cairns Airport Challenge Cairns competitors, ensuring both races and all athletes will shine in their own right and give 2.80.20 competitors the chance to get back to the finish line to cheer on the full distance athletes.
Course details are currently being finalised and will be released in December
Sunday 3 June 2012
Location & Course
