Cruise The Coast At Charitable Community Event

Powered by returning naming rights sponsor Community Bank Sarina Bendigo Bank, registrations for the 2023 Cruisin’ the Coast Sarina Beach Fun Run are now open.

Hosted by Sarina Surf Lifesaving Club, the 21 May event has five different run options to choose from, with all proceeds going to support the Club.

Sarina Surf Lifesaving Club Event Director Neil John said that the Fun Run was the Club’s principal annual fundraiser, combining “fun, fitness and fantastic views” into one event to support the Club’s vital work in the community.

“As a 100% volunteer organisation, we are so grateful for all of the support that we receive from our community – and our popular Cruisin’ the Coast Fun Run is a major part of that support,” Mr John said.

“While raising much-needed funds for us, it also gives our community an opportunity to experience beautiful Sarina Beach – it’s a really fun atmosphere.”

Community Bank Sarina Board Chair Karen May said the event was a “great way for families and friends to reconnect”.

“Whether you choose to walk or run, we want everyone to enjoy the day at their own pace and be reminded of why we love our community so much.”

The run events include a 5km community walk, a 3km, 5km or 10km run and a half marathon option, to make the event suitable for all ages and fitness levels.

Alongside naming rights sponsor Community Bank Sarina, the 2023 run sponsors include Mackay Whitsunday Life, Wilmar, Ray White Sarina, Daly Bay, North Queensland Bulk Ports and Permanent Way Solutions.
