Along pristine white beaches, crystal clear waters and spectacular views of mountain terrain, Hamilton Island is often known as THE place to unwind, but also, a place to push yourself with health and fitness.
Each year, the Hamilton Island Endurance series challenges just that.
Spanning across four endurance events from May through to November testing athletes on every level through The Hamilton Half Marathon, Great Whitehaven Beach Run, Hamilton Island Triathlon and Whitehaven Beach Ocean Swim.
