Australia Day Fun Run & Walkathon


Put on your running shoes, slap on the sunscreen and find a suitable Australia Day hat and join in the fun Australia Day activities starting with the Fun run/ Walkathon at the Eden Skate Park, finishing up with a barbeque and then watching the cricket.

The Eden Killer Whale Museum  and the Eden Gym have come up with a great – life be in it – activity to celebrate Australia Day.

Runners, walkers of all ages and levels of fitness are invited to join in and compete in the 5km event starting at the Eden Skate Park then around Lake Curalo and back to the Skate Park. The event begins at 7.30a.m. for registration and runners and walkers head off at 8:00 a.m. sharp.

Prizes and certificates will be awarded to the 1st male and 1st female runners over the line.  In the junior section, for those under 16, the 1st male and 1st female will also pick up awards and certificates. Our seniors are also awarded a prize.

For some colour and inventiveness an award for the best dressed male and female competitor sporting an Australia Day theme costume will ensure loads of fun so hunt up those red, white and blue outfits and let your hair down for just $15 for adults, $10 for juniors, $35 for families and $10 for pensioners entry fee. This event will be a great fund raiser for the Eden Scout Hall mural – the brain child of artist Stanley Squire.

So come along, bring the family, hunt out a fetching costume just for the fun of it and enjoy a healthy event while supporting a great community project to beautify and celebrate Eden.

Entry forms are available early January at the Eden Killer Whale Museum or at this link 2017-walkathon-entry-form, the Eden Gym and the Eden Information Centre.

You’ve got to be in it to win it! So get in and register for this great event and celebrate Australia Day in Eden.
