Run or walk the Poolwerx Moggill Marathon 'Road 2 Rural'
SUNDAY 19TH MAY 2024
Complete either the marathon, half marathon, 10km, 5km or 2km fun run, taking in the beautiful scenery of the Moggill area, located in the Western Suburbs of Brisbane.
We do add one word of “caution” regarding the elevation of these routes and challenge you to train in anticipation of attempting to scale ‘Mount Moggill’ and some of its mini Mounts along the way!
Whether you choose to walk or run, the Poolwerx Moggill Marathon, there is something for everyone. The event will be a huge amount of fun and bring excitement and support for many great causes on the day. Once again, our beneficiary for 2024 is Bravery Box who support kids with cancer along with local community groups.
About the Event
The Poolwerx Moggill Marathon is a whole community fun-run event that was first instigated in 2020 by local Moggill residents David Ember, Emil Schoeman and friends.
“At this time, Emil and I were running Rocks Riverside Park Run every Saturday together for fun after we met late 2019 through our daughters attending the same prep class at Moggill State School” said David.
Initially David and Emil were daunted by the scale of the challenge ahead. The furthest they had run before was a half marathon. But training was going well, until in March, the pandemic kicked in and the Brisbane Marathon they had signed up for was cancelled. Thus they created their own marathon around the hills of Moggill starting and finishing at Westaway Park.
