With four different distances there is a race to suit everyone:

Wilpinjong 5km Fun Run/Walk

The Wilpinjong 5km Fun Run starts at the very respectable hour of 11am.

It commences and finishes at Lawson Park and the course consists of one lap of paths alongside the Cudgegong River.

It’s a great option for a whole range of athletes – from those who prefer a short fast event, through to friends who enjoy a lovely chat along the way or families getting out and about with kids. It’s designed for all ages and all abilities.

All entrants receive a finishers medal upon completion of the race.

This year we are also tracking how far each of our local schools can run – so if you attend any of the schools in our regions – please answer this question on your registration form – so your km’s can count to your school.  

Entry fees: 
$15 for adults 
$10 for children (under 18 years)
+ online booking fee.

 

Newcastle Permanent 10km

The next distance up from our 5km Fun Run is our Newcastle Permanent 10km event.

Start time: 8am (yes, bring a jumper!), this event starts and finishes at Lawson Park.

The 10km course travels over the Cudgegong River and through a pedestrian tunnel under Ulan Rd. The remainder of the two-lap course takes competitors for a scenic and flat run through the Glen Willow recreation area and alongside the river. Runners then continue onto Lawson Park, where they finish beside the river.

Entry fees: 
$30 for adults 
$25 for children (under 18 years)
+ online booking fee.
