The Great Court Race is one of The University of Queensland’s proudest traditions – a bucket list event for competitors and a must-see spectacle!
First held in 1985 to celebrate UQ’s 75th anniversary, the event is based on Cambridge University’s famed Great Court Run – immortalised in the film ‘Chariots of Fire’.
This year’s Great Court Race will be held on Wednesday 18 May from 12:30pm.
Headlined by the Men’s and Women’s Great Court Races, the event also includes 70m Sprint races, as well as College, Club and Staff Relays.
Spectators are not required to register to attend.
