Looking for something off the beaten track? 

The origins of the Marathon lie in Christmas Island folklore in 92 and began as a wager between a few Island Hash House Harriers but it has since grown to become an internationally listed event.

Competitors  may choose to run or walk (walk not accredited)   the course  in any event. Awards will be given to the first over the line in each category (other than 2km Fun Run ).

This scenic and challenging marathon course starts at the top of the island plateaux 260m above sea level and runs  along roads, trails and through Tropical Rainforests down to and along the rugged Island Coastline finishing at Flying Fish Cove.
