About the Poolwerx Moggill Marathon
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.
