A fun run with an exciting twist and dress-up opportunity
Image - Vision Challenge
Challenge the way you see the world on Sunday 25 August 2019 from 8am to 12pm at Vision Challenge, Victoria Park, Fullarton Rd, Adelaide. Tickets range from $6-$31 to help provide sporting opportunities for the blind or vision impaired by participating in this Vision Challenge Fun Run/Walk hosted by Vision Challenge and Blind Sports SA.
For more information about the event and to participate, sign uphere, with further discounts applying to Blind Sports SA Members and others with discount codes. There'll also be opportunities to ride a tandem bike (for a small donation) and participate in other vision-impaired sports for FREE.
There's an exciting twist to the standard fun run and a new test for those competitors seeking a challenge. Take the easy way and participate on your own or enter as a team (run as a family?) for a unique challenge with each member taking it, in turn, to run or walk whilst wearing a blindfold as their teammate(s) leads them through the course. Trust, communication and team mettle comes into play when you are relying heavily on these attributes.
There's good news for those who are a little claustrophobic or aren't comfy wearing a blindfold. Come as your favourite masked superhero and win some exciting prizes for best dressed.
Distance options catering to families, couples, runners, or those seeking a challenge include 2km, 4km or the challenging 8km. You'll be taken through a predominantly flat circuit figure 8 course designed to test you as you participate in wide road access areas near the Victoria Park Grandstand on the eastern fringe of Adelaide City.
This event aims to raise awareness of the sporting capabilities of vision-impaired or blind individuals while being inclusive through integration into a mainstream sporting opportunity.
