Over 2000 participants will take up the challenge and join the
crowds in the 2009 Viridian Noosa Running Festival on Sunday 2 August
which incorporates the Viridian Noosa Half Marathon (21km), the Noosa
10km run and the Beckman's Green Noosa 5km run/walk.
Over the 19-year history of what is regarded as one of Australia's premier half marathon events the Viridian Noosa Running Festival also boasts one of the fastest and most picturesque courses in Australia. The start and finish are in the Lions Park at Noosa Heads and the completely flat course heads out along the Noosa River to Tewantin.
National and International athletes including Steve Moneghetti and Tanzanian's Oswald Revelian (dual former Noosa half winner) as well as compatriots Patrick Nyangelo and Sarah Majah will tackle the 21km course against a strong field comprised of interstate and Sunshine Coast competitors.
