More than 500 athletes of all ages are expected to hit the track next month for the 43rd Devilbend Fun Run.
The run, on Sunday, August 6, is the major annual fundraiser of the not-for-profit Mornington Peninsula Athletic Club, and the major sponsors are Hocking Stuart and the Bendigo Bank. All proceeds go towards the development of Peninsula athletes – predominately juniors – so not only will you be improving your fitness and having fun in the gorgeous setting of one of the Peninsula’s hidden natural gems, you’ll be supporting a vital sporting club.
As well as the traditional 5km, 10km and 21.1km courses, there will be the Magic Mile for children under 13, the devil parade (the best 10 devil dress-ups have their entry fee refunded) and a warm-up with MG Fitness for 5km and 10km participants.
Walkers are also welcome, so bring the family and make a day of it exploring the beautiful reserve, or just recuperate at your favourite local café or winery.
