One of the greatest runners in Australian athletics history, Melinda Gainsford Taylor will share insights to her success at an exclusive retreat on Magnetic Island this weekend. 

Melinda is the drawcard for the three-day  Fantasea’s Destination Adventure event that will also feature motivational seminars, strength and mobility sessions and the chance to explore the best the island has to offer.



The former world sprint champion is the latest in a list of high-profile sports people to headline a Fantasea’s Destination Adventure retreat, which has previously attracted paddler Clint Robinson and marathon runner Steve Moneghetti as hosts.


Organiser Daina Clark said a highlight of the weekend will be the opportunity to not only hear from, but run with the sprinter who has shifted her focus to half marathon running.


Importantly, the event will cater for all levels of experience as well as trail and park runners.



“In combination with Melinda, we’ve planned a program full of experiences to improve your running from a holistic perspective,” Clark said.


“While the emphasis is on running and honing your running technique, there’s also yoga sessions, guided snorkelling, strength seminars and plenty of free time to relax, unwind and explore the island.


“As always, there’s lots of fun to be had as well as great meals in beautiful surroundings.”


The Melinda Gainsford Taylor Running Retreat Magnetic Island will be held from May 4-7.
