This year the committee has introduced a 70+ category for male and female entrants in the 21km, 14km and 7km. BUAC Members will need to wear your leg tag, and non BUAC members will be allocated an electronic race bib. Please arrive early as this event usually attracts a good number of participants.

Getting there – From Bendigo, head north on Midland Hwy. Turn right into Taylor Street then right into Golf Course Road.

Afternoon tea will be on as usual. Members please bring double the amount of afternoon team to cater for our extra guests. If someone could volunteer to bring the milk in lieu of afternoon tea that would be great – 3L of fresh milk would be great. The attached flyer outlines all the relevant information. Look forward to seeing you there.
