The SunSmart Busselton Half Marathon & Fun Run will be held on Saturday, 10 February 2018. The run is managed by the Busselton Runners Club and has been held as an annual event since 2009. It includes a 21.1km half marathon, 10km and 5km fun run.
Former Olympic Marathon Runner, Steve Moneghetti, is the 2018 Ambassador for the half marathon. Steve will lead the 100mins pace train for the half (4.45mins/km) and will also hold a recovery run on the Sunday following the event.
A special presentation evening with Steve on "How to Be the Best Distance Runner You Can Be" will be held on the Friday evening prior to the event, along with a buffet meal prepared especially by "Kitchen Takeovers Chef Tim Whitty".
The Busselton Half Marathon raises funds for various community groups. Over the past few years it has raised money for FAUNA, Busselton Volunteer Marine Rescue and the WA Disabled Sport Association.
