Mus­cat Run now Oc­to­ber

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

One of the iconic events of the Win­ery Walk­a­bout Week­end - the Ruther­glen Mus­cat Run will not be run on the tra­di­tional June Long Week­end and will be moved to Oc­to­ber.

Af­ter an ex­ten­sive re­view of avail­able re­sources, the Ro­tary Club of Ruther­glen, the or­ga­niz­ers of the event have de­cided to move it to later in the year.

Event or­ga­nizer Peter Walker says it has be­come in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult for the club to run this event, along with other ac­tiv­i­ties on the long week­end, such as the Hole in One at Stan­ton & Killen and also the mar­ket in the Main Street of Ruther­glen all of which hap­pen at the same time as the run.

Peter says the event has been moved to Oc­to­ber 7, which is the week prior to the Mel­bourne Marathon.

“It was felt this was a bet­ter fit for the club, as there were no ac­tiv­i­ties at this time of year and it would be a good train­ing event just prior to the marathon,” Peter said.

“There will be more in­for­ma­tion closer to the day giv­ing all starters, both def­i­nite and the not so def­i­nite plenty of time to pre­pare.

“As usual there will be great prizes par­tic­u­larly for those who would like to dress up for the oc­ca­sion,” he said.
