A volunteer run community event that raises awareness and funds to help find a cure for type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. The event has evolved over 8 years to cater to local demands with a large focus being on the river and now the trails that take in our local and unique conservation park at Kinchina. On offer this year we have exluded the out and back options over the mid and long course to make it a much more interesting point to point challenge. A fun-packed festival for all the family!
