April Fools Run – April 3rd – time to register

The April Fools Run is a great Sunshine Coast tradition that began as a bet between two reporters from the local newspaper. It’s a great story, but best appreciated when you know the characters involved, so I won’t go into the details.

I will confess, however, that my own participation one year certainly lived up to the name of the race. An old knee injury was giving me grief and I had managed to get an appointment with a top rated orthopaedic surgeon. The week before the race, I foolishly cancelled this coveted appointment, thinking he would probably tell me that I shouldn’t go into the run.  

Fast forward 34 years (and three knee operations later) this  half-marathon has grown to 600 participants. It has also gained the reputation as one of the best half-marathons in the country by Canadian Runner magazine. The race takes place on Sunday, April 3rd and is open to runners, walkers and relay teams. Off-coast participants can take 7:20am ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale, or arrive Friday or Saturday and take advantage of a number of pre-race activities.
