Run With Dad in Darwin
1st September 2019
7am – Lake Alexander, East Point
DOWNLOAD the 4km and 8km course map!
What started out as an idea to raise awareness of men’s health has turned into a major Father’s Day event. The inaugural Run With Dad event was held in Darwin on Sunday, September 7 2014 with more than 800 participants, and raised $20,000.
Since its inception in 2014, the Darwin event has already raised $100,000 with more than 4,000 people taking part. Our 2018 event was a huge success! We had 1,000 participants and raised in excess of $25,000. This money has been invested back into the Northern Territory for the ongoing costs for a full-time prostate cancer nurse.
Run With Dad has won the hearts of Territorians, and is only growing in popularity!
Participants can run or walk the 4km or 8km course – and this year, there was a 1km event for the kids!. Pre-event, there is a heart-pumping warm-up lead by the awesome Fitness Works team, and coffee/food available. After the event, there are kids activities and a BBQ breakfast.
If you would like to be involved as a volunteer, sponsor or provider of services on the day, please get in touch with us.
