Fun run all the way to bite at Big Ap­ple

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

A FREE 5km fun run in Moss­man on Sun­day could lead to a start in the New York Marathon.

The In­dige­nous Marathon Project’s Deadly Fun Run is open to ev­ery­one to en­cour­age healthy com­mu­ni­ties.

But it is also be­ing used as a step­ping stone for lo­cal in­dige­nous ath­letes to join the Deadly Fun Run squad which com­petes in the New York Marathon ev­ery year.

Cairns run­ner Na­dine Hunt is part of the squad and will be tak­ing her place on the start­ing line.

More in­ten­sive run­ning events will be sched­uled for lo­cal young in­dige­nous ath­letes in the com­ing months if enough in­ter­est is shown.

There will be a free bar­be­cue at the Moss­man Gorge Com­mu­nity af­ter the fun run.

Any­one who wants to take part needs to reg­is­ter at the start­ing line next to the Moss­man hos­pi­tal from 7.30am on Sun­day with the run to the Gorge start­ing at 8am. Sea but not quite enough to hold off the chal­lenge.

Fi­nal po­si­tions on cor­rected times were Ann Sea 01:15:37 from Magic, 01:18:22, and Ice, 01:20:34, Tau Ceti, 01:22:03, Is­land Girl, 01:23:49, Port FM Mais Oui, 01:27:09 with Indigo fail­ing to fin­ish in the the three-hour time limit.

The win gives Ann Sea top po­si­tion for the Spring Se­ries with Port FM Mais Oui re­tain­ing top spot in the Po­sei­don Sail­away Club Cham­pi­onship.
