The Port of Mackay’s Southern Breakwater will provide a scenic background this Friday (15 September) for the first ever CITYRUN Mackay event.

The breakwater will be closed temporarily to traffic from 1am until 9pm as runners compete in either 2.5km, 5km or 10km loops in a bid to fundraise for the Great Barrier Reef.

NQBP is proud to support the community event and to provide participants with access to the breakwater.

Event director Bruno Bennett said the use of the NQBP facility was a highlight of the event.

“We’re thrilled that NQBP is providing the use of the breakwater for our first ever CITYRUN Mackay event,” Mr Bennett said.

“The location of this run has to be one of the most beautiful,” he said.

“It fits in perfectly with the two other events being run simultaneously at the Townsville Strand and Cairns Esplanade.”
