I am a writer living in Adelaide. I love food and travel.
Run, walk or ride - your choice
The Great Breakaways Marathon started in September 2009 as a result of two local Coober Pedy girls' conversation about raising funds for a new playground in town. It has then eventuated into a District Council of Coober Pedy initiative. This year it will be held on Saturday the 10th of June.
The marathon goes from the Breakaways to the town oval. Participants will travel along the Dog Fence and down Kempe Road. You can run, walk or ride. The choice is yours. You can also choose between the 5km, 10km, 21km (half marathon) and 42km (full marathon) distances.
The marathon finishes with food, drinks, community stalls and presentations at the town oval. There will be family fun activities and children are welcome to participate in a special children's fun run.
