The Maleny RunFest, run by the Lions Club of Maleny Blackall Range, is almost upon us again, so grab your runners and start training!
Easy on the eye, routes take in some of the most magnificent views of the countryside and celebrated vistas of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. However, past participants say that they recall the ‘challenge’ being more than just the ‘mountain views’.
Mark Clayton from RE/MAX Hinterland, who are sponsoring the Half Marathon event, has grown up in town and on part of the track and can affirm that runners who appreciate a challenging course will get their first taste of what Maleny is also well known for – the ‘undulating countryside’ as known in real estate, or ‘unforgiving terrain’ as is more commonly known.
For those of you who would prefer an easier option, this is a great event with different distances to suit anyone wanting to be involved in a community event supporting a good cause.
The course has options for a 3km walk or runs of 5km, 10km, or 21.1km for the more daring. It can be taken as seriously or as socially as you wish. Meet some Maleny locals and support the Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation.
