The Canberra Times Fun Run | 8 September 2013

Now in its 37th year, The Canberra Times Fun Run is a long standing event in the Canberra Community and will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013.

The event provides an opportunity for everyone to get involved, from serious runners to joggers, pushers and walkers and allows entrants to see the iconic sights of Canberra, such as Lake Burley Griffin, Old Parliament House, Parliament House and views of The National Carillion on Aspen Island.

Entrants are encouraged to set up a fundraising page to raise money for ADRA. A fundraising page is a special website that’s accessible to your family, friends and colleagues. You can share a special message of inspiration, start a blog, share an image or video, and raise funds for charity or a cause.

Have a fun day out, sign up at the Canberra Fun Run website or kick-start your fundraising at Every Day Hero.
