The Great Whitehaven Beach Run Posted by Reef Magazine - 16 August 2014 This has to be the most breathtaking half marathon on earth – and not because of the distance. Yes the white silica sand of Whitehaven Beach is somewhat of a big distraction. But there were clear winners at this inaugural event in both the men and women’s classes. The 21.1km half marathon victory was claimed by Craig Feuerherdt and Belinda Soszyn; Mitchel Brown and Dawn Romanella powered out the 11km race; Jock Campbell and Maja Zepcan clinched the 5.5km win and finally Tom Kubis and Olivia Romanella won in the under 16s, 1km kids race. It was a great day, celebrated with a swim in the turquoise sea.
