New Run for 2017!

Join the New Run

After a successful first year we’re adding a 5km run and 5km walk so that everyone can now be part of this fun event.

Whether you run for fun and fitness, or are training for a new personal best, trade your usual run route for a recreational run in Bowring Park that is family friendly and suitable for everyone. The 5km run course is completely separate from the ride route. So lace up for an out-of-the-ordinary run that’s sure to be a favourite!
