TAKE UP THE NOOSA HALF CHALLENGE

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. Organisers of the event, USM Events, have catered for people of all levels and abilities with distances to ensure there is something for everyone.

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.

Corporate Teams categories in the half marathon, 10km and 5km continue to grow with many businesses now using it for team building programs and mid year conferences. Enter your Corporate Team into any of the three distances and you could win your own private marquee to watch the 2009 Noosa Triathlon from.

USM Events are committed to helping raise money through their events for local charities and have teamed up with the Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation as the official charity of the Beckman's Green Noosa 5km run/walk.
