The Ballarat Foundation’s Run for a Cause 2019 will be the largest mass participation community fun run/walking event in the area with all proceeds going directly to local charities. Heading into its second year Run for a Cause 2019 will be hosting Ballarat’s first half marathon in almost a decade.

Run for a Cause brings together schools, businesses and community groups to raise funds and awareness for a particular cause each year. This year’s cause is focused on supporting the 1 in 5 local children who start school vulnerable. With a fast, flat course designed by Julian Spence, it will offer people of all abilities a scenic and challenging day out. With distances ranging from 1km to 21kms, and high levels of on-course entertainment there will be something for everyone.

Lock Sunday November 17th into your calendar as 2019 is set to be bigger and better again with more events, more competitors and additional value for the competitors.
