The third annual Sandgate Sunset Run is to be be held next month. The run involves teams of two to four runners doing as many laps of the 250-metre Sandgate roundabout as they can for two hours, using a giant glow stick as their relay baton.
This year organisers have added a social relay, offering a less-competitive, fun and social 40-minute relay for runners aged 12 and over. Also included on the day is a Kids Dash for children aged nine and under and a Junior relay for those aged 10-15. The entertainment includes roving stilt walkers, a chill-out zone and a Kids’ Stage with multiple performances.
Organiser Dean Gibson said the third annual run was all about promoting health, fitness, fun and charity.
“There’s really something for everyone at the Sandgate Sunset Run – whether you are a competitive runner or more interested in the food trucks,” he said. “With World Food Markets (with 10 food trucks), jumping castle, face
painting, a live DJ and plenty of glow sticks, this will be a great opportunity to bring the community together.”
The run is raising money for Share the Dignity, a local charity providing sanitary items for women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Collection bins will be present on the night.
The event will be held on Saturday, October 8 from 4-8pm, with an official after party at The Full Moon Hotel.
Registrations are capped, but places are still available.
