Event:
Lake Tuggeranong fun run series
Your pre-dawn alarm goes off. You roll over and look at the temperature outside on your phone. The figure displayed is below 0 degrees Celsius! It's cold Canberra winter mornings like these that take every fibre of your being to roll out of bed, put on your running gear and head outside for a run.

From my experience, nothing inspires you to get out of bed and brave the cold like an impending running race.

The 2016 Resolution Run Series offers a variety of distances to suit everyone, including:
1. 800m kids run
2. 3km run
3. 7km run/walk
4. 14km run
5. Half marathon
6. Full marathon (November event only)

The next event is on 24 July 2016. This is the third run in the series so far, with the final run scheduled for 13 November 2016.

WHERE:
The Resolution Run taking place on 24 July is located at the gorgeous Lake Tuggeranong and surrounding area of Greenway ACT. The location is ideal for walkers and runners of all levels.

WHY:
Apart from helping hundreds of runners and walkers set and achieve a rewarding fitness goal, the Resolution Run Series raises fund for Men's Health. Profits go to Canberra-based National charity OzHelp Foundation who supports men's health in the workplace. They are committed to helping men live "happier, healthier, longer lives" by "funding programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity".

Each event will focus on a different aspect of men's health i.e. this run will focus on awareness of men's mental health and depression, whilst the November run will focus on raising awareness for prostate cancer.

The purpose of multiple events is to take individuals on a journey throughout the year, encouraging them to set regular goals and gradually improve their time, distance, and fitness.

The Resolution Run Ball will be held at the end of the year on 3 December 2016 to celebrate participants' achievements throughout the year.
