Gather your team for Run Devonport – March 17

Shared by |tags, , , ,

Rally the family around for the event that will get your heart pumping all in the name of good health and exercise on Sunday March 17, Run Devonport!

This is a "family focused" event where everyone can participate in a non-competitive run that will help get the 'healthy body, healthy mind' message out to fellow Tasmanians.

Prams and walkers are also welcome to the event, which consists of four different race distances: 1km, 2.5km, 5km and 10km.

Serious runners are encouraged to get amongst the activities, with trophies awarded for the 5km and 10km events, while offices across the state and nation can gather their colleagues for the Fairbrother Corporate Challenge and bring glory to their workplace.

Families and friends can help with the fundraising efforts of the Red Cross Tasmanian Bushfire 2013 appeal by finding people to sponsor them at the Run Devonport event.

Thousands of people across Tasmania were impacted by the devastating bushfires, with some residents losing their homes.

The funds raised through the Tasmanian Bushfires 2013 appeal will be used to help make a difference to the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by the January fires.

All races will start and finish at Roundhouse Park, with each participant receiving a chest bib and timing tag, a finisher's medal, a Run Devonport running cap, fresh fruit at the finish line and the chance to win spot prizes and giveaways at the event.

Families can also cheer their loved ones on from the sideline with music and kids entertainment provided throughout the day.

Standard entry fees are from $20 (1km race), with entries after March 15 charged a little extra.

Interested participants can enter online before March 13 or download a manual entry form and send it through quick smart!
