Sun-Tue 1-31 Mar THE MARCH CHARGE (NSW)
One third of cancers can be prevented through living a healthy lifestyle. That means having a healthy diet, being physically active every day and maintaining a healthy body weight. This year in Australia, that's 38,000 cancer diagnoses we could avoid by prevention alone. Move Over Cancer is a set of challenge events encouraging people to get active, and beat cancer. The March Charge is our launch event and is taking place in March 2015. We're taking a head on approach to beating cancer and for the whole month of March we're running at it, not from it. HOW IT WORKS Enlist - sign up and set your personal running goal Promote - enlist support and seek donations by sharing your personal fundraising page URL with your networks Charge - start running and tracking your KMs from 1st March 2015  contact: Cancer Council. email: themarchcharge@nswcc.org.au. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.

This is one epic challenge and a seriously challenging event. Not for the faint hearted either, the 42.195km Steve Moneghetti Marathon follows a similar course with the inclusion of the Bump Track, but with first a loop through the pristine valley of Spring Creek before heading for the infamous climb. This event turns around at the top of the track and heads back into Port Douglas along the palm tree lined streets of Port Douglas - an adventure marathon like no other! There is also the 21.1km Sheraton Mirage Resort Port Douglas Half Marathon which also begins on the beach and the 10km Newsport Daily run, a hot lap around the township of Port Douglas from the beach to suburbia, through hidden trails and back along the palm tree lined streets. Also on offer for those preferring a more 'fun run' approach is the 5km Port Douglas Fundy 5000 and the 2.5km Coles Junior Challenge. There's something for everyone!  contact: Mick Whalen. email: info@pdem.com.au. Visit the website for more details. Click here for an entryform.
