Red Dog Relay boost
The Red Dog Relay and Festival will have a different format this year, after Landcorp issued a large grant towards using the event to activate the Karratha city centre.
They have agreed to give the City of Karratha $150,000 a year, for the next three years, to spend on boosting local engagement with the CBD.
This year those funds will be entirely directed to the popular Red Dog Relay. The opening and closing ceremonies will be held in the city centre, and three of the seven relay legs will pass through it.
The event will be held on the WA Day long weekend of June 3-6 this year.
