    • Did the 10k Fun Run in 2019

      Fantastic run.love the city to city and missed last year.think the finish line was heaps better this year with more people hanging around.plenty of drink stations on the way too.maybe could have a longer run 15 or 21km but not that big an issue.well done to all who helped put this event on and to all the volunteers on the day as well.
    • Did the 10k Fun Run in 2019

      I enjoyed the race- I think the musical acts along the course were a great way to motivate me and gave the race a sense of entertainment.
    • Did the 10k Fun Run in 2019

      I loved this event, well organised with great atmosphere, lots of participants at all levelsLots of water stations along the course Suface mainly roads and a few paths, only one real small hill, great finish line, beutiful wodonga junction place, modern rustic setting with food and drinks, great to catch up with friends and family after you run, l only give a 4 star for the course as l prefer more bush tracks than roads
    • Did the 10k Fun Run in 2019

      I would like to commend the organisers, volunteers, supporters and participants who made this an awesome event. There was not one thing related to this event that could be improved upon that would make the event. Although I am not a fan of the concrete path around Sumsion Gardens, did enjoy the surrounds during that phase of the route. Congratulations to you all.
