Gold Coast runner Reg Hogan has competed at the 7 Sunshine Coast Marathon every year since it started in 2012. This year won’t be any different for the spritely 80 year old, who will join 2000 other runners in the half marathon. The event’s appeal for Reg is the enthusiasm of the other runners and the great atmosphere on the day.
“Each year the event grows, the course is great and the runners are so good to run with,” Reg says.
Knee problems have curtailed Reg’s plans to run the full marathon and he suspects 2016 might be his last appearance at the event. But he’s not letting that stop him with training and preparation for the run well underway. Come and join Reg in the half marathon and help celebrate the event’s 5th birthday celebration.
