Mount Isa’s very own Backyard Ultra, being held at Warrina Park (Peacock Park), Lake Moondarra on the 18 June 2022.

The rural mining town might not be full of elite athletes, but we sure do make up for that with community spirit.

Pulverise at Peacock Park is being held as a fundraiser for the Laura Johnson Home, Dementia Unit.

Dementia is the second leading cause of death in Australia and the leading cause of death in women.  There are currently an estimated 487,500 Australians living with dementia. Without a medical breakthrough, the number of people with dementia is expected to increase to almost 1.1 million by 2058.

The 6.7km loop includes dirt trail, sand, rocks, bitumen road and for those of you who know me well – at least one hill.
