The Chincogan Charge will be running again this year on September 8 following its successful re-launch in 2017 with 500 runners.
‘This year we are adding in children’s races for six-to eleven-year-olds,’ said Jenelle Stanford, president of the Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce and the driving force behind the race.
The race will start and finish at the Post Office and the kids will run to the base of the mountain and back – adults need to accompany children.
The afternooon will feature a-tug-of-war organised by the Brunswick Valley Historical Society.
‘There is a limit of six teams that can enter the tug-of-war and nomination forms can be collected from the Mullumbimby Newsagents.’
The Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club will be sponsoring the professional runners’ prizes while The Echo will sponsor the first locals across the line.
