Carman’s Women’s Fun Run
New Years Eve Rock Around the ClockLittle River, Victoria, AU

The concept of a 3 race night series was to provide an opportunity for runners of all levels to enjoy a low-key, grass-roots style, yet well supported, trail running event. It was created particularly for those considering the next challenge that will take them past daylight and into the sphere of night time running, guided solely by the light of their torch and perhaps a running buddy at their side in support. It is an opportunity to experience the heightening of senses, taking in the many night time trail noises - there's no danger, but it's just what happens!

Enjoy the safe, supportive introduction to night time trail running. It will test those sleep demons for some, but if 100km events are on your radar this is a great place to feel safe and supported and test yourself. And what better time to do it as the NEW YEAR ticks over. Don't be home, watching the fireworks on TV when you can see more fireworks than you can imagine, spanning from the city of Melbourne all the way around the bay to Geelong. And why head to bed at 12:30 when you can be running through the night?

Seaford Wetlands Fun RunSeaford, Victoria, AU

The Seaford Wetlands Fun Run was initially created to give us an event focused to raising funds for Mental Health programs in our area. What has been extremely pleasing is the fantastic community involvement. We continue to work to raise funds for Mental Health and support the Kindred Clubhouse.

The 2km competitors enjoy a warm up before setting off. Next is the warm up for the 5km and 10km runners. Each participant receives a medal that was specially designed by a student at Seaford North Primary School.

The track is flat and sealed so weather should not cause an issue, so far we have experience very nice sunny mornings.

This a community fun run to raise awareness and funds for the establishment of a new mental health service in the wider Frankston area: Kindred Clubhouse Program.
