Run for a Cause 2018

The Ballarat Foundation ‘Run for a Cause’ will be the largest mass participation community fun run/walking event in the area with all proceeds going directly to local charities.

Proudly filling the void left by Run Ballarat, ‘Run for a Cause’ will bring together schools, businesses and community groups to raise funds and awareness for a particular cause each year. With a fast, flat course designed by local runners, it will offer people of all abilities a scenic and challenging day out. With distances ranging from 1km to 10kms, and high levels of on course entertainment there will be something for everyone.

Key event details you need to know:



Sunday, November 18. The event has been pushed back a month in a bid for warmer weather.


10km and 5km runs, which are slightly shorter. The family walk and a children’s run will return with the introduction of a seniors shuffle.
