The President of the Kiama branch of the Red Cross, Heidi Smith, says competitor numbers have doubled in the first two years of the event and this year they are hoping for over 1,000 entrants.
“There will be the 5 kilometre and 9 kilometre events again this year, as well as a new 18 kilometre run,” she says. “With the new distance, there is not only something for the fun-runners or walkers but also be a genuine test for competitive runners.”
“With Council support, and the beauty of the Kiama Coast Walk, we hope to build the run into something everyone will want to do,” says Heidi. “Who knows? In the next few years the Kiama Fun Run may even rival the City to Surf!”
