||The 2012 'Keeping Kids On Track' Fun Run has been created to give an awareness of the spectacular Rail Trail between Kilcunda and Wonthaggi, and the stunning features along its path within the Bass Coast Shire, including the pristine waters, the rugged coastline, the Desalination Plant and the Wind Towers.
The Bass Coast Triathlon Club in conjunction with other local groups have endeavoured to create an event which includes competitors of various ages and abilities by offering various distances, and we encourage participation from both locals and visitors alike.
It is a fundraising event in memory of Leslie McKay, a highly regarded mentor of youth and a fine advocate for reaching beyond our boundaries. Leslie herself was an avid runner, remembering her efforts in a recent Half Marathon and her passion to continue despite obstacles was an inspiration to an event with the emphasis on FUN!!
Leslie was also heavily involved in the nurturing of our youth and education and would support the funds from this memorial event to be put back in to the youth and education.
The 'Keeping Kids On Track' Fun Run is set to be the first of many for years to come. So let's get this event out there, let's make Leslie and many like her proud. Even if you are not a runner, it might be time to step outside your comfort zone, let's have a crack and 'Keep Kid's On Track'!
Events include: 3km, 5km run/walk and 10km, 15km and 21.1km run.
