I love travelling and writing, meeting people and experiencing foodie places.
Our fathers, grandfathers, sons, brothers, uncles and all the great male role models who have influenced the lives around them, celebrate this Father's Day by participating in The Warrior Fun Run on Sunday 1st September. This event is part of the Father's Day Festival at Centennial Park which fundraises for the Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMF), established by marathon great Rob de Castella. The IMF is a charity organisation that uses running to drive change in Indigenous communities nation-wide. Participants in the Warrior Fun Run event are encouraged to wear some Indigenous themed face paint markings – the paint will be provided.
The Warrior Fun Run will be held in the pleasant green expanse of Centennial Park's Parade Grounds. There will be a 5km or 10km run/walk, or join the 2km kids' and adults' dash. This is an event for all people. The start time for the 5km and 10km run/walk is 9.00am, the 2km dash is at 10.30am. Early Bird adult tickets start at $45 for 5km, or $55 for 10km. The 2km dash is $15 adult, child $10 (6 - 17 years), family team (2 adults, 2 kids) is $40. Ticket prices increase as it gets closer to the event date with varied prices depending on age and length of run. Click here for further pricing details.
The Warrior Fun Run will be one of the main events of the Father's Day Festival which is open 8.00am to 2.00pm and offers an opportunity for a unique Indigenous cultural experience. The festival will feature market stalls, food, workshops, sport try-outs, Aboriginal dances and music, bush food cooking demonstrations, fitness workshops and much more. This will be a fun day out with the family and an enjoyable day for the special man in your life.
