THE Suva Marathon Club has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with Island Chill as they prepare for the 2018 Island Chill Suva Marathon on July 21.

It is another year for one of the South Pacific's greatest road races which first started in 2014.

The main sponsors have recommitted their support according to Carpenters Fiji Ltd director retail and marketing Kuna Sabaratnam.

"We are proud to recommit our support as the main event sponsor for another three years as the key objective is to promote healthy and active living," he said.

"The Island Chill Suva Marathon is an inclusive event with something to suit all members of the community whether you are a regular runner or you just getting started.

"We are proud to support the South Pacific's greatest road race and this year we are also supporting with prizes in a number of buildup events starting this Saturday with a five and ten kilometre run from Suva Bowling Club."

The Island Chill Marathon has a race for everyone. The full marathon of 42.2 kilometres and half marathon of 21.1km enable runners to set a challenging goal for the year.

The team marathon of four people running 10.55km each has become popular with a group of friends, businesses and organisations keen to motivate each other towards their fitness goals.

A fun run or walk of 10km will also be part of the event and Athletics Fiji will also be supporting kids athletics program at Albert Park.

Chief guest Assistant Minister for Health Alex O'Connor said one of the big challenges was keeping fit.

The run is open to everyone in Fiji, the South Pacific and the world.

For those wanting to register for the marathon you can visit and visit their Facebook page for regular updates.
