This aims to be a ‘COVID SAFE’ event, able to be run individually or in small (socially distanced) groups. Around your streets, in the bush, along the beach or wherever you might already love running.
If you want to go the extra mile and get people talking, you could dress like Forrest Gump and let your local media outlets / news feeds know about it!
You can easily find his hat and running gear for sale on EBAY or other retailers.
We found a few options HERE, HERE and HERE. Of course you may already have a beard so you could just grab the HAT and a YELLOW SHIRT / RED SHORT combo and you’ll be all set.
Just make sure it all arrives on time!
Each runner is encouraged to organise their own course, supporters and end party (if your local health regulations allow). Where you can celebrate your efforts over the last few months, raise some extra funds and (if you like) shave off your magnificent winter neck mane. In previous years, our ambassadors have celebrated with an event at their lawn bowling club, pub or just had a BBQ with their nearest and dearest.
To get on board, simply set up your profile (if you haven’t already) via the button above then share it to social media asking your friends and family to sponsor you for every KM / Mile you complete. Every dollar helps us champion the early detection of melanoma, Australia’s ‘national cancer’. Not only by raising awareness, but by providing free, educational skin checks via our pop-up clinics. Targeted to those who need it most.
