The event attracts running enthusiasts from around the region, including Townsville, Cairns, Charters Towers, Whitsundays and Mackay, and is the second race in the ANQ Half Marathon Series. 

The event also has a key focus of attracting first time competitors through the provision of five and ten kilometre fun runs, and kids fun run.  Most participants take part for the personal challenge, the experience of a vibrant community event and to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle.
