I write for Weekend Notes and I take photographs, usually sunsets and sunrises. Occasionally I include my photos in my articles. I like to promote Geelong, and activities around Geelong.
Jacob's Creek Barossa Marathon, Sunday 25th May 2014
The "Jacobs Creek Barossa Marathon" starts at the Faith Lutheran School, Magnolia Road Tanudna and ends at the Faith Lutheran School. The Marathon goes from 6.30am to 12.00 noon on Sunday 25th May. At the end of the event there will be a live band and catering.
You can choose to run or walk the marathon, half marathon, 10km or 5km events. Everybody is welcome! The course starts at the Faith Lutheran School, then the course will take participants through the Barossa Valley vineyards and wineries.
Entries for the Marathon close on Friday 23rd May at 12.00 noon. Online entries are now open. No entries will be taken on the day.
The charity partner this year is Muscular Dystrophy South Australia. The Jacob's Creek Barossa Marathon organisers are very proud to assist Muscular Dystrophy South Australia in their efforts to support people living with neuromuscular conditions in SA & NT.
There are currently no cures for Muscular Dystrophy. The services that MDSA provide are invaluable to the over 20,000 people living with the condition in Australia.
The fundraising efforts of the Barossa Marathon Running Festival Muscle Team will be used to provide support to children and adults living with muscular dystrophy.
Muscular Dystrophy SA provide essential services such as therapies, respiratory aids, counselling, respite camps and advocacy.
