    Cairns 70.3

    Always had it in mind to complete a long distance endurance event?

    Now is the time to start training for 2014 and the Cairns Ironman 70.3 could be the perfect event. Warm waters of Tropical North Queensland, lush coastal roads for the bike leg and a trot into town to finish off – sounds like paradise! Held on 8 June 2014, the 70.4 distance comprises a 1.9km swim, 90km bike course and 21.1 km run. Rich in dense rainforests, Indigenous culture and a gateway to the famed Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is a beautiful spot for you and your cheer squad to make a holiday out of it. To learn more or to register visit ironman.com
