Bendigo Racecourse

Registration closes on:

Saturday, 31 August 2019 at 8:00 PM - (GMT+10:00) Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

Start this Father's Day with the Bendigo's"Run For Dad" fun run at the Bendigo Racecourse supported by Barry Plant Real Estate

Designed to raise your heart rate and much needed funds for the new Bendigo Community Health Service's men's health clinic and Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, we're calling on families from across Bendigo and beyond to dress up as their favourite superhero to support the heroes fighting prostate cancer. 

After your run, enjoy a free breakfast (and free coffee!) PLUS entertainment provided by the Eaglehawk Brass Band. 
The picturesque course around the Bendigo Racecourse is safe for all ages covering sections of grass and gravel.

Please note that as this is held at the Racecourse there is a no dogs policy.

Why Prostate cancer?^

  • In Australia, prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men.
  • More than 3,000 men die of prostate cancer in Australia every year.
  • More men die of prostate cancer than women die of breast cancer.
