The Beechworth Fun Run is growing each year. More than 660 participants enjoyed the Beechworth Fun Run last year, taking away over $2,000 in cash prizes and 'spot prizes' provided by local sponsors. The 10 kilometre event is a very scenic and diverse route through the wonderful bushland gorge, the streets of Beechworth historic town, past Lake Samball and finally through the golf course. The course is a good challenge for very experienced runners but also just a lovely walk for those who are not so fit.The three kilometre run sees people who are starting out on their fitness climb, with lots of families, prams and dogs participating.The event is run by the Beechworth Secondary College as their major fundraiser and is part of the town’s Golden Horseshoe Festival. It is held on Saturday 15th April, with the race starting at 9am from the Beechworth Secondary College in Balaclava Road.Registrations open early March and will be accepted on the day from 7:00am to 8:30am. Go to the Beechworth Fun Run website to register online.There will be a barbecue breakfast and coffee van available also from 7:30am. Queries can be made via phone or email.
