Port Douglas Fun Run just a week away

By Sarah McConnell

On Saturday 20th February the first Port Douglas Fun Run will he held.  It starts at Rex smeal Park at 6.15am and will be run around a course for either 5kms or 10kms designed by Sarah McConnell from Inspire Fitness for both fitness fans and first timers to enjoy.


This series of six planned Fun Runs are aimed to help the community get into walking or running and doing something positive for their health and fitness.  They also give individuals a goal to achieve by first of all completing the 5km or 10km distance and then trying to beat their personal best times over the series.


The Fun Run will also raise money for Running Pink a supporter of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.


Deborah De Williams is the woman behind Running Pink. Deborah, along with her constant companion her Border Collie, Maggie, are setting out once more to achieve their goal to become the first female (and the first dog) to run around Australia!  Deborah and Maggie will continue to use their feet to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation.


Deborah will be running through Port Douglas and Mossman in December 2010.


Registration for the run will be from 6.00am for either the 5km or 10km events at $15.00 entry fee.
