Desert Dash for young and old
Monday, 4th January, 2010
The Broken Hill YMCA is in the process of organising the first ever Living Desert Dash Fun Run. There will be a variety of distances open to competitors, with the main event being a 10km run from the Sculptures car park to Picton Oval. There will also be a 5km run starting along the Nine Mile Road and finishing at the Picton Oval. Another two runs will be for school children. These will be a 1km run for kids in Kindergarten to Year 3 and a 3km event for kids in Years 4 to 6. A Healthy Lifestyles Expo will be held at Picton Oval at the completion of the event, where local sporting and community groups will be invited to promote their activities and encourage further participation in an active lifestyle. The YMCA's aim is to establish a community event that will be held annually and continue to grow over time. Similar running events are found in most major centres in Australia. The Fun Run is to be held on March 7 and is supported by the National Australia Bank. Keep an eye out for entry forms at the YMCA and National Australia Bank in the New Year.
