Fun run all the way to bite at Big Apple
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.
