Lace up your running shoes for this much-loved virtual community event.

The warm weather has arrived meaning more pleasant runs and less freezing, rainy ones. If you’ve been running consistently during lockdown and want to see how far you’ve come, or want a new fitness goal to work towards, the annual Run 4 Geelong is your chance.

Dubbed ‘A Race For Better Health’, Run 4 Geelong is a family-friendly community event that caters to all fitness abilities, with a festival vibe along the course, entertainment, a great family day out supporting such a great local cause.

The key takeaways

  • Lambys is hosting their very first record fair
  • The free event will take over the venue on Sunday, September 19
  • You’ll find 12-inch vinyl, 45s, CDs, cassettes, DVDs and a stack of musical memorabilia

Keep up with the latest in local events via our website.

Much like last year, this year’s event is looking a little different, going ahead virtually for 2021 with new, never seen before activations all while raising funds for our local health service, Barwon Health.

Going down on Sunday 14th November, locals are encouraged to sign up and complete your chosen distance (1km, 5km, 10km) or choose your own challenge which allows the participant to designate the number of kilometres. In addition, this year you can include your four-legged friend in the fun with the very first Run Paw Geelong!

On marathon day, you just need to head out and do your distance – whether that be on your treadmill, on Geelong’s Waterfront, through the Botanic Gardens or around your block.

By registering, 100 per cent of your registration fee will directly support an area of your choice within Barwon Health and you will receive your iconic Run 4 Geelong t-shirt that we know you all love.

If you’re feeling inspired you can even create an online fundraising page, where you can call on your friends, family and colleagues to support you in a race for better health and raise additional funds for your chosen area.
