Great Court St Lucia campus
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 15 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.
