Who said you cant drink wine AND exercise? Have your wine and drink it too, we say! We bet youve never run a race quite like the Grapest 5k Run!
Experience a great evening with friends, with a little fitness & lots of fun. You will work up a thirst with the 5k or 10k run through amazing wineries across Australia. Then enjoy a cool down through the wine tasting waddle to re-energise yourself before some grape dancing with our live entertainment as the sun goes down.
Newcastle's iconic Australia Day harbour swim will return next year after the management team gained approval to run the event. There were fears the trans-harbour swim would never return after our club was forced to cancel it in January last year due to safety concerns and increased marine activity.
Club president Callan Nickerson said the swim had been running for 24 years and had only been cancelled twice.Its a really uniquely Newcastle event and we wanted to ensure it had a future, he said.
The swim is great way to kick off your Australia Day and not something that we wanted to lose. You dont get to swim across the worlds biggest coal port every day.Up to 400 swimmers from across NSW and Queensland are expected to compete in the ocean swim on January 26.
