Still in the running: Benita Willis heading to MMR

Olympian and Australian athletics icon, Benita Willis will be heading north in June as the official ambassador for this year’s BMA Mackay Marina Run.

The annual event is fast gaining a reputation as Queensland’s most scenic running event with a flat and fast course that has attracted runners from all over Australia and even from New Zealand.

Held Sunday 4 June, the run will raise much needed funds for the Leukaemia Foundation with contributions to date totalling nearly half a million dollars.

Event Director, Tim Magoffin advised, “We are extremely proud of our long-term relationship with the Leukaemia Foundation and what we have been able to contribute to such an important organisation.

“Over the past 14 years, the BMA Mackay Run has raised more than $480,000 to assist the Leukaemia Foundation with their valuable work.

“Each year our event evolves and this year we are hoping to welcome an expanded running field of just under 3,500 runners from throughout Australia.

“Our goal for this year is to reach the $500,000 mark and we are well on track for that.”

Set against spectacular sub-tropical scenery and one of Queensland’s only blue water rivers, the race offers a 21.1km half marathon, 8km and 5km fun runs, a corporate challenge and 3km kids dash.

Starting at the Mackay Marina Village, runners will weave their way along the picturesque marina wall, along the blue Pioneer River and through to the Mackay CBD.
