A brand new Hyundai Grand i10 worth can be won by one lucky finisher at the 2018 Island Chill Suva Marathon on July 21.

The Suva Marathon Club is delighted that the major sponsor, Island Chill and the wider Carpenters Group has sponsored a car as an incentive to participate in the annual Suva Marathon event as part of their 150 years celebrations of being in Fiji.

“This is our opportunity to support health and wellness in Fiji and also give back to the country and our customers. MH’s 150 years in Fiji is dedicated to our loyal customers that have supported us through the years and we are very excited about giving a car to one of them after the Island Chill Suva Marathon”, said Carpenters Fiji Ltd’s director retail and marketing, Kuna Sabaratnam.

“This will definitely help to boost registrations – and we are keen to ensure that everyone is prepared for the run.

“Running 10 kilometres individually or as part of a team is a significant achievement and we would like to encourage as many people down to our regular Thursday club runs, the Olympic Day Fun Run on June 29 and Saturday, July 7 run ahead of the main event on July 21,” said race director Marita Manley.

With health and wellness, the priority for participating an added bonus is to win a car.

The South Pacific’s greatest road race will start from the Albert Park in Suva and has four divisions – the full marathon (42.2km), half Marathon – 21.2km, team marathon – 10.55km x 4 and the 10km fun run.

To motivate participants to gear up for the marathon event there are training programmes held every Thursday night and monthly time trials in Suva on the first Saturday of each month along the Nasese seawall in Suva.

The marathon is open to both local and international runners, corporate groups, families, individuals and people with disabilities to encourage people from all walks of life to take part.

For those wanting to run for a cause, Wow Kids and Save the Children Fiji are the official charity partners. Marathoners can also run for other organisations to raise funds.

Registration is compulsory– you can register at suvamarathon.org
