An event for people of all levels to sign up and achieve their goals

We encourage you to the finish line and award medals whether you run hard, or for fun. We like events where people can test their resilience and get a buzz from feeling a sense of team spirit. These traits make for a meaningful experience and are key to the Hospice’s cause.

Sign up individually or as part of a team. This event is all about the camaraderie so even if you’re not in a team there will be plenty of encouragement throughout the 5km course.
