We will do two laps starting at Gunns Rd Reserve and run clockwise around Frog Hollow Reserve (the ponds) twice to finish & back at Gunns Rd Reserve
Fastest runners will be in the first wave, followed by slower runners, then walkers.

Get practicing for this event by participating Parkrun which is a 5km run every Saturday morning at 8am rain hail or shine

Make sure you are wearing comfy running shoes and sporty clothes. And don’t forget to dress up in deadly Aboriginal colours (red, yellow, black) if you want to go in the running for Best dressed

SMOKING: This event celebrates a world without tobacco and will have a high amount of children participating, because of this we strongly encourage anyone who smokes to not smoke for the time the event continues. If you must smoke during the event time, please do so discretely (out of sight) and at least 50 metres away from any event activities. We will have Quit Victoria smoking support services on the day including Aboriginal Quitline counsellors who are always happy to have a yarn, they will also have information packs for you to take home.
