This is undoubtedly Qld’s most beautiful trail-running event, with spectacular trails taking you through one of the marvels of nature – the towering sand cliffs of the Cooloola Coast. Formed over thousands of years, the coloured sands rise over the expansive blue Coral Sea. Runners will experience lush forests, perched lakes, rising sand dunes and the historic lighthouse while running single track, fire roads and beaches. This is the perfect event for a weekend getaway.

Rainbow Beach is the third event in the Run Qld Day-Night Series. Complete all four events to automatically qualify for the series.

​Interesting fact: The Aboriginal people have a dream-time story about how the Coloured Sands were formed along the Cooloola Coast.
