Multisport Mecca - - News -

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.”
