You are invited by the people of Cherbourg to join the Fun Run/Fun Walk from Murgon to Cherbourg.
And if you are from Cherbourg, join the event in Murgon and Run or Walk, show our visitors the road to our home town…
The event is for fun, for enjoyment. The event is for everyone. The people of Cherbourg open their arms to welcome the people of Murgon, the South Burnett and beyond to walk and to run the 7 kilometres in the name of friendship, in the name of hope, in the name of good health, in the name of new possibilities…
COME! Run with friends, walk with strangers, share with everyone, dress up as a team, enjoy together… and at the end of the route in the Cherbourg Memorial Park and the Ration Shed Museum we’ll all have a big party – with food, with games, with stalls, with dances, with performances, with prizes…
Registration fees range from $2 for children registered through their schools to $20 for adults and $50 for families. Ration Shed President Aunty Sandra Morgan said: “the registration cost should not put anyone off. Everybody is welcome to participate; if the costs are too high for you and your family, please tell us and we’ll work something out.”
Everyone is most welcome after the race to come and join the fun, even if you are not participating as a runner/walker. Food will be on sale and there will be lots of activities – ranging from visiting the Ration Shed to sports workshops and Aboriginal dance workshops. There will be donation boxes on site or you can donate on the Donations Page here
