RUN, ROLL, STROLL

10km Fun Run/Walk

 


The City2Saxton is a 10km fun run/walk from Victory Community Centre to Saxton Field on smooth walkways.

A great family event on foot, scooter, skateboard, rollerblades, wheelchair, mobility scooter or get creative and bring a skipping rope or hula hoop. Sorry, no bikes. The course follows smooth walkways most of the way.

Get involved with your mates, family, co-workers or enemies! This is an event for everyone, you'll love it.
