Red Cross Fun Run offers distances for all

Kiama Red Cross President Judi O’Brien is delighted at the way locals and visitors have taken their Share the Red Cross Journey Fun Run & Walk to their hearts.

“People are making it a tradition on the June Long Weekend,” she says. “We have people out to test themselves on a long distance, people walking their dogs and families enjoying time together.

“It’s a fun way for the community to raise money for the Red Cross. It has quickly become our second biggest fundraising event.”

Following the popularity of a new longer course last year, it has been increased to the official half marathon length of 21.1 kilometres.

That course starts at Surf Beach at 7.30am, and heads out to Dunmore. The 9km course starts at 9am at James Oates Reserve Minnamurra, and the 5km course starts at 9am at Bombo North car park. All courses end at Surf Beach.

The group with the most entrants will win a trophy.

Details: Sunday 11 June. You can register on the day at the starting points or via the website: kiama.com.au/events.

Cost is $20 for adults, $10 for children or $50 for families for the 9 & 5km. $40 for the 21.1km course.

All dogs must be on leads.
