Run Geelong Training Programs (12km) – Coming Shortly


Run Geelong 2012

2012 saw the course move to the waterfront for the first time.  But this didn’t stop the community turning out in the thousands!  Geelong gathered together to raise over half a million dollars for the Children’s Ward at Geelong Hospital!  Thats right … 11,750 people turned out on Sunday 19th November to run, walk, crawl and roll the streets to raise money for Geelong’s Children’s Ward.  Raising an incredible $503,000 meant that the redevelopment of the Children’s Ward could be complete.  Today, we are lucky enough to have a beautiful, state of the art ward in our own town.

In another year of firsts, we are so proud that 2012 saw our first official wheelchair friendly event.  That’s right, people of all abilities were able to run, walk, crawl, push, be pushed or roll Geelong … and we couldn’t be happier about it!

Run Geelong 2011

In 2011, 11,150 people made their way around the streets of Geelong on a sunny November day, raising an incredible $448,000 for the Geelong Hospital Children’s Ward in an amazing show of community spirit.  We took in a number of beautiful Geelong landmarks, but none more exciting than that final few hundred metres being a lap of the stadium at Kardinia Park.  In other exciting Run Geelong 2011 news, the event was cemented as Australia’s largest regional fun run!

Run Geelong 2010

Perfect conditions were a welcome start as Run Geelong’s second year kicked off.  The finish line was moved inside Skilled Stadium (as it was then known) and Geelong’s support grew to record levels as 8,144 participants took to the streets. With that, the event managed to raise over $270,000 for the cause and work at the Children’s Ward was well under way!

Run Geelong 2009

Wet, cold and windy conditions could not deter 2,100 participants from making their way to the start line for the inaugural Run Geelong, in what would prove to be an incredible platform for this remarkable community event.  When the announcement was made that the project we were raising money for was a full redevelopment of the, Geelong Community responded! As the event was wrapping up – work on the Children’s Ward was about to start!
