Runners and walkers of all abilities are being invited to take part in the Club Bargara Lighthouse Run Festival which kicks off in the region next month.
The event, which is in its second year, will be held on Sunday 5 June with runners descending on Christensen Park for the first race at 6 am.
The races will start in order of distance, with the full and half marathon taking place first, followed by the 15km, 8km and 2km children’s event.
Everyone is encouraged to attend the event, dispite running ability.
For those who would prefer to walk, the 8km course is the perfect option with no cut off time involved.
Bargara Triathlon Club President Troy Austin said the festival was now the only local running event on offer in the region.
“The Club Bargara Lighthouse Run Festival is the only local running event happening in Bundaberg with the Cane2Coral and Ring Road Run not going ahead this year,” Troy said.
“It is a great way to exercise with distances for all including a 2km walk for kids to the playground and back and different distances for all the adults.
“Everyone gets a medal and a run bib and it is all professionally timed, we are looking forward to a great morning.”
Troy said this event provided the chance to practice for those competitors looking to take on bigger marathons in places such as Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
“This provides an opportunity for people to see what the bigger events in Brisbane and the Gold Coast would be like,” he said.
“Drinks and everything will be supplied on the course, so it gives the participants a feel of what a bigger event would be if they kept going moving forward.”
Registrations for the event close on Friday, 3 June.
