Why not join in the #airliebeachraceweek 'Festival Fun Run' on Sunday, August 12.
The Fun Run will start at 4pm on Sunday, August 12, with registration beforehand from 3-4pm.
We will have a one mile course from the Whitsunday Sailing Club to the end of the boardwalk at @portofairlie
You can walk or run the single mile, or as many miles as you like inside one hour.
For every mile achieved, Airlie Beach Race Week Festival of Sailing will donate $1.00 to A Mile in Their Shoes.
Staged by the Whitsunday Running Club and proudly supported by the Whitsunday Sailing Club, selected winners will receive meal vouchers to enjoy at the Club and all are invited to swing to a night of live music from ‘Living in the 70's’ after the Fun Run.
Entry is free.

“I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.
It is my favorite thing, I think, that I have ever seen. Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel.” Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See
What on earth did I ever do to deserve so much? So much happiness, love, freedom... I surely didn’t always feel like that. 10 months ago I hardly knew where I was going, I was tired of travelling so much, I didn’t know when I would have to get on yet another visa run, work was slow and money was flowing in slowly and I remember just feeling very lost. A lot of things have happened since. I believe we‘re all on this big journey and sometimes you just have to trust the process & keep going!
Roo beauty! In case you didn't know, Cape Hillsborough National Park in north QLD is an excellent place for spotting beach-loving kangaroos, particularly late afternoon. This treasure-crammed park is an essential day-trip destination when staying at BIG4 Mackay Blacks Beach Holiday Park or @big4mackaymarinetouristpark, or further afield at @big4adventurewhitsunday.
