The partnership with STAR FM for both the Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival and CITYRUN events commenced in 2011.

Since that time STAR FM has been a Premier Media Partner for all events.

STAR FM is recognised as a partner who always adopts an “above and beyond” attitude in any promotional activities. From the State and General Manager down, STAR personnel are 100% committed to delivering the highest standards of media support.

For the CITYRUN and Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival this support has included:

Star FM MCs and STAR FM live on the big screens at all events
Promotion of entries for each event for each STAR FM station
On-line registrations available through STAR FM
A commitment to preserving the Great Barrier Reef - our National Treasure and healthy lifestyles and communities
Introduction to Run for the Reef Sponsors
Extensive promotion of all events through the STAR FM & Grant Broadcasters network
Coverage of all Run for the Reef special events and news.

The CITYRUN and Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival commend the team at STAR FM to all events – especially in the north Queensland region where the professionalism and commitment of STAR FM to events is always of the highest standard.

The Run for the Reef Initiative involves runners competing simultaneously in cities around Australia raising awareness and funds for the Great Barrier Reef.

In 2017 1000’s of participants competed in Cairns, Townsville and Mackay. All ages and abilities were represented from Olympians and families to STAR FM corporate teams.

Participants at each of the events not only participated against all other runners in every Run for the Reef CITYRUN event at the same time, but they also all raised funds through the Run for the Reef registration process and through the Everyday Hero fundraising platform.

The Run for the Reef events include the famous Great Barrier Reef Marathon Festival conducted annually in Port Douglas in October and the expansion of the CITYRUN simultaneous events around the world where participants run to raise money for Great Barrier Reef research.

Thank you so much to the entire STAR 102.7 team. Our relationship with STAR 102.7 is year-round and we appreciate the support for Australian’s Biggest Morning Tea, Cairns Relay For Life, Daffodil Day, Walk For Women’s Cancers and Girls’ Night In.

The support provided for these campaigns goes above and beyond and aids Cancer Council Queensland in raising much-needed funds. Nothing is too much trouble and everyone is always quick to reply, support and offer valuable input.

MCs Dave and Inkie get behind each of our campaigns with mentions, interviews and personal experiences, they are a highlight as MCs for our Relay For Life. The support of the Promotions personnel Thyzre and Imojen has been amazing for each of our campaigns and they even went the distance at Cairns Relay for Life and stayed for the entire 18 hours.

Thank you STAR 102.7 for your professionalism, support and for always making a difference to our work!
