Get in quick for fun run

South Western Times - - Sport -

En­tries for the 2019 SWAS Tel­stra Fun Run are now open, with peo­ple en­cour­aged to get in quick to score free race mer­chan­dise.

The first 100 to sign up for the fifth an­nual race around Bun­bury’s Leschenault In­let – on Satur­day, March 16 – will re­ceive a com­pli­men­tary T-shirt. All mem­bers of the pub­lic are en­cour­aged to en­ter run (2km, 5km or 10km) or walk (5km).

Cash prizes are up for grabs in each race cat­e­gory and there is a spe­cial prize for the school with the most num­ber of en­trants. Walk­ing and run­ning en­thu­si­asts are al­ready gear­ing up for the event, with lo­cal race walk­ing cham­pion Cooper An­der­ton set­ting his sights on claim­ing the 5km walk.

South West Academy of Sport chief ex­ec­u­tive Bernice But­lion said the event was fam­ily friendly, with prams and young chil­dren wel­come.

“We’ve made com­pet­ing in the fun run af­ford­able so ev­ery­one can take part — with an em­pha­sis on hav­ing a good ex­pe­ri­ence,” But­lion said.
