Shepparton Running Festival news.

The Shepparton Runners Club are coming to the pointy and busy end for planning the Shepparton Running Festival. Entries are up by about 20% on last year.

If you are able to help out on race weekend and give us a few hours of your time please contact Rosalie Smith A.S.A.P. so she can fill in the volunteer spot. Speaking from experience over the last few years come midday on Sunday the SRF committee are exhausted, please consider helping pack up as it will be greatly appreciated.

This years event will be bigger and better than previous years. We have Tara Daniel 5k finish line group that she has been training for the last 6 weeks. Nine runners are setting out to run either their first 5 km run or to run a 5k Pb. Well done Tara with Sam assisting. Look out for the runners in their 5k tops. Also you will get the opportunity to meet and greet them at Tuesday training session. Chris will be doing the Mona Fartlek session and the 5k finish line runners will join in with the SRC runners.

Continuing on with the bigger and better theme. Narelle and Kathy will be at the SRF with Ditto. Saving one child at a time raising awareness about sexual assault.

Bit of fun at the lake in readiness for the McDonalds Shepparton 2km Kids Dash. How cute are our superheroes!. Make sure you jump on line and register your young superheroes! Narelle Pell and Kathy Fuller are both super proud to be associated with the Shepparton Running Festival with#voice4kidz being a nominated charity partner. Our little superheroes deserve the right to be able to run free, dress up and have fun in a safe and protected environment. 💛💜
