Cairns festival added to portfolio
ANOTHER major running event has been added to the Atlas Multisports portfolio.
Jason and Lisa Crowther are directors of the Buderim-based company last week announced the inaugural 7 Cairns Marathon and Community Run Festival, which will be staged on April 28 next year.
Cairns follows the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon and Community Run Festival, as well as the McDonald’s Brisbane Marathon Festival which was embraced by Atlas events for the first time this year.
The first official run festival of its kind to be held in Cairns, it will include 2km, 5km, 10km, half (21km) and full (42km) marathon distances.
About 4000 runners are forecast to take part.
“We are looking forward to hosting an event of this size and scale in the Cairns region,” Jason Crowther said.
“We know this is going to be a popular event because of the overwhelming support we’ve already received from sponsors, local government and Cairns businesses. Runners of all ages and abilities can come and enjoy the run and then holiday with their friends and family in the perfect tourist destination.”
