We have had great success with this fun race in the past and hope to continue it for the years to come and help charities raise money and awareness.

 

This race gives people young and old the chance to come together as a family and group of friends, get dressed up and stay active at the same time. It really is about having fun!!

 

$15 of the adult’s entry fee will be donated back to your chosen charity. (we will use the remaining $5 to assist paying for online booking fees and administration costs.)
The $5 child entry fee will be donated to your chosen charity.

 

Money can be raised in the way of collections prior to race, donations from businesses sponsoring the chosen charity and group. 100% of donations participants collect from non-participating family and friends will be passed on to your charity.

 

This a fun run and charity race so please have fun and enjoy.
