Plans are well under way for this year’s O’Keefe Challenge and with less than 100 days to go, now is the perfect time to pick your challenge and register.
For the runners, we again have the popular favourites including the Mandalay Resources Marathon, the Half Marathon, the Athletes Foot Bendigo 10km, 5km and Heathcote Lions Club Mile and we’re introduced some new additions, too.
New Walking Events
We are introducing several new running events, we have modified the quarter marathon to become a 10km event for both runners and walkers and there is also an opportunity for the walking enthusiast to complete the whole 42.2 km marathon course.
New Cycling Events
As you might have seen from our separate news update, we have two NEW cycling events: our Friday Night ‘Light The Trail’ ride and a Family Scavenger Hunt. We think they are both unique and different experiences for you to enjoy and we've been receiving great feedback on them already.
New Finish Location in the heart of Heathcote
Plans are progressing for all events to finish on the Barrack Reserve oval in the centre of Heathcote for the first time. Along with the finish chute, there there will be a host of community activities and events to keep the spectators and family members amused and entertained whilst they’re waiting for you to finish their Challenge. Awaiting them at the finish line will be a newly designed medal for every participant, too.
Introducing the Village Green
The area outside of the oval will be transformed into a Village Green, featuring a Kids Zone for the parents and their kids to take time out whilst they nibble on some of the local delicacies provided by the local schools. There will be a special event day market offering healthy food options and a chance to grab some bargains, plus a new wet area to enjoy a glass of Heathcote’s fine local wines and craft beers.
So, what’s your challenge?
