The SunSmart Busselton Half Marathon & Fun Run

with Ambassador Steve Moneghetti

Saturday 10th February 2018

The half marathon and fun run is held annually on the 2nd weekend in February. The event has grown from 200 participants in 2009, the first year, to over 1300 participants in 2017. Competitors take part in half marathon, 10km and 5km fun runs which commence from the Busselton foreshore. Numbers are expected to increase this year with the announcement that former Olympic Marathon Runner, Steve Moneghetti, is the 2018 Ambassador for the half marathon.

Steve will lead the 100mins pace train for the half (4.45mins/km) and will also hold a recovery run on Sunday following the event.

The SunSmart Busselton Half Marathon raises funds for various community groups. Over the past few years it has raised money for FAWNA, Busselton Volunteer Marine Rescue and the WA Disabled Sport Association.
