Run the Marsh registrations are now open! There are some exciting additions to this year’s event. We have the 2km and 5km runs again, plus a 3km walk. There will be medals, trophies, games, t-shirts, a smorgasbord of prizes and wait for it….a Celebrity Runner!
The event will once again be held at the beautiful Frogwood Arboretum. It will be on the 26th of August 2018. Join other “Life Be In It” people and get a bit muddy!
Check in, hot drinks and warm up activities will kick off at The Deans Marsh Cottage at 9am. We will hear from our Celebrity Runner about what it takes to be a champion and why she loves Steeple Chase so much.
We will be keeping a tighter schedule this year with participants setting off in packs with the 5km runners first, 2km runners second, followed by the walkers.
We will also be timing runners this year. As part of your registration pack you will receive a running bib. These will be complete with your name and the event you enter if you register by the 10th of August. You might be the first to set a cracking record! Times will later be posted on the website.
This year the first 100 registrations will receive a free t-shirt. It will be a different colour to previous years.
Another exciting addition is our online raffle for a two night, weekend holiday unit for a family at the Big 4 Caravan Park, Wye River (valued at $460).
There will be energetic, fun outdoor games as the runners finish. At around 11 o’clock the medal ceremonies, prize giving and presentations will take place at Frogwood.
Would you like to train beforehand and get motivated? Why not join the Marsh Fit exercise group at the recreation reserve on Monday and Friday mornings at 9.00 am? Its FREE FITNESS FUN.
