On The Run is launching its trail running tours with an adventure that is close to our hearts; the Whitsunday Tropical Trail Run Tour, May 2019. Spend six nights in tropical Queensland enjoying trails and tastes you’ve only dreamed of before testing yourself with the Hamilton Island Hilly Marathon. Your hosts will ferry you from one idyllic location to another, you’ll get the chance to ‘find nemo’ and his friends as well as challenge yourself with a variety of distance options each day.

You’ll enjoy quality accommodation and mix with fellow trail enthusiasts. You’ll run a variety of trails, mostly single track, under the direction of experienced guides amongst some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world, and still be able to return home to a soft bed, warm shower and quality dining options.

The Hamilton Island Hilly Marathon will be just part of an amazing experience, but the memories of the quad-burning hills will be washed away by the amazing vistas you’ll enjoy as part this unique race experience (note; half marathon and relay options available).
