Time is running out to line-up for this Sunday’s St.LukesHealth Launceston Marathon.
The event will be held at the North Esk precinct, with a distance to suit all abilities from beginners through to ultra-marathon runners.
Race director John Claridge said the day would have something for everyone – even those spectators supporting from the sideline.
“We’re lucky to have the support of a number of food vendors on the day including Vege Out, Tico Rico, Eliza’s Vegan and Coffee Buzz,” Mr Claridge said.
“There will be face painting and other activities onsite for children to enjoy for a gold coin donation.”
This year’s race will be a disposable-cup free event, with each runner receiving a lightweight, folding cup as part of their race entry.
“There will be two stations on the course. Both stations will carry water and be accessible from both sides,” Mr Claridge said.
Race packs can be collected from St.LukesHealth’s head office, 17 The Quadrant, Launceston, on Friday, September 21 between 10am and 3pm.
St.LukesHealth Head of Brand and Communications Grayson Genders said the health fund was pleased to be naming rights sponsor and assist in distributing race packs.
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with the Launceston Marathon and offer runners and walkers of all abilities the opportunity to participate,” Mr Genders said.
“The event aligns with our strategy to help members of the community stay healthy, get well and live better.”
