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.

Community Visitors urgently needed
We require Community Visitors for HOME HILL and AYR
We have elderly clients who are housebound and lonely. They feel trapped in their own homes and would love someone to call round and visit them. Their family members live away and some weeks no one would visit.
If you have an hour to spare either weekly or fortnightly, please contact RITA QUAGLIATA at BCA on 47833744.
