Welcome

As a founding sponsor, Channel 7 Queensland has had the privilege of watching this event grow from the vision of three mates who loved running and wanted to find a way to combine this with their passion for social outcomes, into a sustainable, world-class event that has delivered over $750,000 to communities all over Australia. It continues to grow in it’s vision to be one of the largest sporting, fundraising events in the southern hemisphere.

Channel 7 Queensland is proud to be a part of the event’s ongoing success in driving a significant number of intrastate, interstate and international visitors to the region each year.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank both competitors and the Sunshine Coast community for your continued support of this event and your contribution to making this a festival with a unique runner experience.

I would welcome people to challenge themselves, not just physically, but also to raise funds and awareness for the things they are passionate about.

Ben Roberts-Smith, VC, MG
