Ready ready again
Updated: Oct 20, 2021
THE new date for Active Farmers’ Run for Resilience has given locals a second chance to improve their fitness and set new goals.
The run was postponed when Lockdown 5.0 was suddenly imposed but organiser of the event, Claire Harrison, says that has been a positive for many participants from across the Loddon.
Claire said runners for the event at Bridgewater on October 10 were now back in training. Hundreds had entered and more are expected to join the community connection initiative strengthening the wellbeing of local rural communities.
“For people who didn’t get to do all the training they wanted last time, the new date is a second chance,” Claire said.
“We’ve already had a few runners setting new goals. Some are very ambitious and will now tackle the longer 21km course from Inglewood to Bridgewater, others are looking to increase their goal from 5km to 10km,” she said.
“It’s a matter of setting the goals, starting training again and follow the training schedule to be ready for October.
The Loddon Herald is a sponsor of Run for Resilience and registrations are still being accepted for the run.
