Welcome to the annual Mackay Mountain Marathon! 

Whether you are looking for a fun family adventure or an extreme MTB/run challenge this event, set in Eungella national park, is sure to satisfy. Pedal or run your way through lush rainforest on a winding single track crossing platypus inhabited creeks and rivers. Then head out to tackle challenging fire roads in the back country before making your way back to finish above the clouds and on top of the world!

Why not make a weekend of it? We have planned family events and entertainment on the Saturday evening and encourage all participants to camp out with us at the Eungella cricket oval Saturday night.  Eungella National Park is situated 80km west of Mackay.
