Great Whitehaven Beach Run

Sunday 27 June, 2021

We are looking forward to welcoming this year’s participants to the pristine sands of famous Whitehaven Beach for the fun and challenging Great Whitehaven Beach Run!

We’re also super excited to have the amazing Paralympian Jaryd Clifford join us for this year’s run. We did a Q&A with Jaryd pre-race, if you have a couple of minutes it’s great to hear from him directly on his approach to training and preparing for the Tokyo Paralympics (and for the Whitehaven Beach Run). Read the transcript here.

If you’d like to meet Jaryd when you come up for the race, email us at and we will organise a time for you to meet him for a chat and a photo. He’s an extremely inspiring young athlete, so this might be of particular interest if you are a parent with a child that loves to run.

See below for other Race Details including Cruise Whitsunday transfers if needed.

What you’ll love about the Great Whitehaven Beach Run: 

  • Challenge yourself to a half marathon, or a 10km or 5km run along Whitehaven Beach. 
  • Enter the kids in the 1.5km or 500m Junior Fun Run and make this fun event one for the whole family.
  • Compete either in the Individual Open (with no qualification required and open prizes awarded across all distances) or the Individual Age Group (age categories subject to minimum competitor entries).
