The Mackay Marina Run is one of the Mackay region’s premier sporting events. It is also a major running event for regional Qld with 3000 people registering in 2016. The event has grown with tremendous support from the local community including Mackay Regional Council and BMA. Additionally it has benefited from the invaluable support and expertise of the Qld Events Regional Development Program.
While it is a Mackay Road Runners signature event it has strong links within the local community including the Mackay West Rotary club, The Mackay Surf Life Saving Club, NQBP and the local branch of the Leukaemia foundation who are the major beneficiaries of the significant fundraising efforts.
Message from the Mayor of Mackay Regional Council
Runners and walkers of all abilities will experience fun and excitement and all that a premier running event has to offer at the 2017 Mackay Marina Run.
To be held on Sunday, June 4, 2017 the event takes in much of the beautiful surrounds of Mackay including the ocean, and the half marathon course loops through the city showcasing some of the fantastic features of Mackay, the city, the Pioneer River and the world class marina.
Thank you to the generous sponsors for making this wonderful event possible. It will be a special year with local champion Benita Willis continuing her association with the event.
Whilst enjoying the great outdoors you can choose to fundraise for a great cause, the Leukaemia Foundation. The event raises up to $50,000 annually for the local branch.
