Run for the Reef in Cairns, Queensland

The inaugural Bendigo Bank Run for the Reef Community Challenge starts from the Funship Playground on the Cairns Esplanade.

The 5km Fun Run is one of three Fun Runs held in the tropical north aiming to raise funds for the JCU Great Barrier Reef Research Fund, as well as the local schools within the Cairns region.

Participants are encouraged to not only sign up online but to become Reef Champions through Everyday Hero with great prizes for the highest fundraiser. Participants are also encouraged to keep it fun, dress in blue or wear something "reefy" as there are also prizes for the best outfit!
