The annual Melanoma March has been running for eight years to support new, potentially life-saving melanoma treatments. There will be two, two-hour Sydney marches, one along the Manly Promenade on March 10 and the other in Emu Plains’ Regatta Park on March 17.
There’s two courses to race, cartwheel or amble your way through, and every member of the family is invited to join both the 2km and 5km lengths. Dogs are welcome, as are scooters, bikes and prams and there's a family-friendly party at the finish line.
This year marks the 22nd anniversary for the fun run that raises money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. There are two courses to have a crack at in Sydney: one around the CBD and one in Parramatta and each event offers a 4km and 7km and 8km walk or run.
Feeling unenthused about exercise now summer is drawing to a close? People of all ages and abilities will be heading to the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan to tackle a 6km or 11km walk which aims to increase awareness about the benefits of an active lifestyle.
