Organised by volunteers from local sporting and community groups, this event is held in
conjunction with the Mornington Peninsula Shire to complement the activities held along
the foreshore each year.
Catering for a wide range of competitors the Aus Day Fun Run has two start points, for the
more dedicated runners we have a 10km run which starts at Safety Beach; the second start
point is at Dromana and is a 5.3km Run/Walk catering more towards children and families.
Both events take you along the foreshore bay trail and finish at the Village Green in Rosebud.
For both events we use electronic timing through 'Tomato Timing' so all our competitors are
able to obtain their completion times.
On finishing at the Village Green there is a flag raising ceremony and presentations for all
place getters in each category of the fun run. Along with plenty of fun and free family activities
held on the Village Green, the fun run is a must for all sporting enthusiasts as well as family
and friends looking to celebrate Australia Day on the Mornington Peninsula.
Proceeds from the Australia Day Fun Run support local sporting and community groups
whose members volunteer their time each year to run this fantastic community event.
