The Beechworth Community Bank Fun Run is one of the most popular events in the North East come Easter and what a great event it is.
It is held in high esteem by competitive runners and social runners and keen walkers. More than 700 participants enjoyed the Beechworth Fun Run last year.
The Easter Fun Run has been a significant part of the Golden Horseshoe Festival for many years. Since 2007 it has been organized by the
Beechworth Secondary College as their major fundraiser. Your support is greatly appreciated.
So what makes our run so popular? The 10km event is a very scenic and diverse route through the wonderful bushland gorge, the streets of Beechworth historic town,
past Lake Sambell and finally through the golf course. The tracks are mostly bitumen, flat gravel and short grass through the golf course. The course is a good challenge
for very experienced runners but also a "good" walk!
The 3km run sees people who are starting out on their fitness climb, with lots of families, prams and dogs participating. The Beechworth Community Bank Fun Run/Walk
has been recognised by ‘Run 4 Your Life’ Magazine as the ‘Most Family Friendly’ Run & as one of their ‘Must Do’ runs.
The autumn weather just begs you to be out enjoying the outdoors and it’s the start of a long weekend that can then be spent discovering all that Beechworth has to offer.
The event is held on Easter Saturday each year starts at 9am from the Beechworth Secondary College in Balaclava Road (opposite the Cemetery).
