Beechworth Community Bank Fun Run

Beechworth Community Bank Fun Run gets bigger and better each year!

More than 660 participants enjoyed the Beechworth Fun Run last year, taking away over $2,000 in cash prizes, as well as the “spot prizes” provided by our local sponsors.

So what makes it so popular? The 10km event is a very scenic and diverse route through the streets and surrounds of Beechworth's historic town as well as the beautiful bushland gorge. The course is a good challenge for very experienced runners but also just a lovely walk for those who are not so fit. The run is also part of the North East Runners Series.

The 3km run sees people who are starting out on their fitness climb, with lots of families, prams and dogs participating. Our 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, held on Easter Saturday each year, is run by the Beechworth Secondary College as their major fundraiser and is part of the town’s Golden Horseshoe Festival. Organisers at Beechworth Secondary College were thrilled with the funds raised last year for their school community.

The event this year is on Saturday 31st March, with the race starting at 9am from the Beechworth Secondary College in Balaclava Road. Registrations Open Friday 23rd February. Go to the Beechworth Fun Run website to register online
