Been thinking of visiting the lighthouse in Byron recently?
Well now is the time to register for the 13th Byron Lighthouse Fun Run for charity that is taking place on Sunday October 20.
Participants can run 10km, walk 6km or do the 1km kids dash. Professionally timed and with lots of prizes this is a great day for all the family.
Raising money for local charities
‘I am very proud to be able to donate 100 per cent of the profits this year to Headspace Lismore and the Women’s Resource Service at the Mullumbimby and Districts Neighbourhood Centre,’ said Lisa Parkes who organises the event.
‘This is only possible through the generous support of local sponsors and businesses and the great work by our committee and team of volunteers.’
The run has grown significantly over the last ten years and organisers are expecting up to 1,000 participants.
In 2016 Ms Parkes’ efforts were recognised with an Australia Day Award for Best Event in the Byron Shire.
To register for the race or walk, go to www.byronbaylighthouserun.com.au or get in touch with organisers through the website if you would like to volunteer to help out on the day.
