Run for the Hills – a charity fun run on Sunday October 20.

Here is some information on the event:  The Hills News Hills M2 ‘Run for the Hills’ Fun Run and full-day Family Festival will be held on Sunday October 20, 2013. Partnered by Fairfax and Transurban (M2), the 8am run starts and finishes on Main Street, outside the Piazza at Castle Towers and is followed by a FREE day long Festival for families on Main Street, hosted by Castle Towers & Event Cinemas.

Registrations are open now at www.runforthehills.org.au. Event Ambassadors are Network Tens’ Magdalena Roze and ‘Dancing Hurdler’ Michelle Jenneke.

The 8km course runs through the rolling landscaped hills of historic Heritage Park, and takes in some of the undulating streets in the Hills District. The course will satisfy competitive runners, yet still accommodate the most laid-back fun-runners.

We have cash prizes of $1000 each for the Fastest Man and Fastest Woman as well as $500 prizes for the Fastest Junior Girl and Fastest Junior Boy.

Each participant will be tracked for time and safety through a state of the art Chronotrack RFID timing system, embedded in runners’ bibs, from Timing Sports. Participants will have access to their timing data online upon completion of the run.

Runners Bibs will be available at registration on the day of the event, from 6am until 7.30am.

On the day of the event, all entrants who complete the course will receive an 2013 The Hills News Hills M2 Run for the Hills Finishers Medal & a Run for the Hills Wristband (complete with zippered pocket).
Marathon-Photos.com will be providing downloadable Finishers Certificates, free-of-charge, to all entrants who complete the course.
PLUS – The first 500 to register will receive a Hills News Run for the Hills back pack, containing goodies from Transurban, Virgin Active and more!
