'Best job' Ben in prelude to The Solar Eclipse Marathon

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Ben Southall, winner of Queensland Tourism's 'Best Job in the World' contest, set himself five New Year's challenges for 2012. One of them is The Solar Eclipse Marathon this November. 

Last year, a Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival was held as a prelude to the Solar Eclipse Marathon event this year and Ben successfully ran the half-marathon.

He made a great film which showcases the extraordinary beauty of the region. Watch it and get a taste of the adventure that's awaiting you in November!
