I'm putting the call out there for all runners, whether fast or slow to challenge yourself and sign up for the Portsea Twilight fun run 2017, to join me and hundreds of others taking part in one of the most iconic and scenic twilight runs in Victoria.
Despite recently fracturing my foot due to running related injuries, I've set the Portsea Twilight fun run as my first event back as I can't think of a better way to celebrate the New Year than with a fun run. I've already signed up and pencilled the event into my calendar to give me the motivation I need to keep my fitness goals on track over the Christmas period, and also as a reminder that my foot will heal and that I'll be lacing my runner's back up in no time at all.
The great thing about the Portsea Twilight fun run is that it's an event for everyone. All ages are welcome and can enter in either the 8km run, 4km walk or the kids run. The bonus of walking the course is that it gives you more time to soak up the atmosphere and time to enjoy the views.
The 8km run starts at 7pm from the Quarantine Station at Point Nepean and takes in undulating short, sharp hills and exquisite views. The 4km run/walk starts at 6:30pm and follows the roads and trails of Point Nepean National Park.
Standard entries are $40 for adults, $30 kids or $120 for a family of 4 (online up until the 5th of January). On the day entries are available but are more expensive at $55, $35 and $145 respectively. The first 2200 participants that enter will receive a free cap.
So let's kick off the New Year together on a balmy summer's evening and take on the Portsea Twilight fun run.
Entries are now open, so what are you waiting for?
