Entries are still open with a range of categories from 5km and 10km runs, as well as a 5km walk, 10 km relay and 2km Kids Run, ensuring there is something for all fitness levels.

Online registrations will remain open until 3pm Friday 23 June, and race day entries will be taken from 6.40am on Sunday 24 June at Freshwater Park.

Bowel Cancer Australia, a healthy eating station, jumping castle and soccer activation will be on site to keep participants informed, their tummies satisfied and children active.
