I am a world traveller & a mom of two, (8 & 6). I love to meet people, and am fascinated that there are 7 billion stories out there to be explored. I think Melbourne is the most happening city to live in with all the fun activities around town.
The Rock Beckons
People run for all sorts of reasons. Some for weight loss or fitness, others for raising awareness, and some for raising funds. Some like to run to see the world. Whatever your reasons are, running is fun. And what makes running even more exciting is when you have a challenge ahead of you with a stunning natural landscape as a backdrop.
If you need some motivation as to why you should participate, here are some that I could think of:
1. Fresh country air 2. Varied terrain: grassed racecourse, country sealed, gravel 3. All fitness levels and age groups catered for 4. Breathtaking landscape 5. No traffic to interrupt runners
There are three distances to choose from: 5km run or walk (starts at 10:15am), 12 km run or walk (starts at 9:30am) and 20 km run or walk (starts at 8:15am). Children can also participate in their very own 2km run or walk (or crawl) (starts at 9:40am). Each participating child gets a medal for encouragement; however, only the top three runners (males and females) in the adult runs will receive a medal. The running maps are available at the website.
