The Beach to Brother Marathon is just one of a few distances offered on Sunday 24th September 2017. Also on offer is a , a Half-Marathon, a 10km Dash, a 5km Fun Run, and Team Relay Marathon. All of these distances are based on the beautiful Mid-North Coast of NSW, starting in various locations along the marathon route, but all finishing atop North Brother Mountain – one of the most scenic lookouts on the North Coast, located in Dooragan National Park, Laurieton. Both the individual and team relay marathon events start at Town Beach, Port Macquarie; the half-marathon starts at Lake Cathie Beach; the 10km Dash starts at Camden Haven Beach, and the 5km Dash starts at Laurieton Pool.
The courses have been designed by long-time runner Michael Maher to provide a similar challenge to races such as the Six-Foot Track Marathon, the Coastal Classic, and the Rafferty’s Resort Runs. Given his knowledge of what works and what doesn’t, from participating in such events, he has ensured the four distances all offer a challenge to every runner. Other than the 5km Fun Run, the runs all encompass beautiful beaches, coastal paths and trails, and as was named by competitors in 2016 the ‘hill from hell’ at the end! The four distances on offer all provide both mental and physical challenges in among some of the most beautiful and scenic coastline the Mid-North Coast has to offer.
The Mid-North Coast has a vast amount to offer in the way of tourism; now it has an iconic series of runs to participate in whilst you are visiting! Book in for an awesome challenge; bring your friends and family to compete; then, relax in paradise!
