The Hero Run is an event dedicated to celebrating the heroes in our lives – from the every day heroes (such as single parents and ultra runners) to the more fanciful heroes that don capes and save the world. Come, dressed as your favourite hero, and chance winning a prize!
The Hero Run is an out-and-back looped course that covers the Laratinga Wetlands and the Mount Barker Linear Trail. Three, five, and 10km runners will do one loop (with different turnaround points). Fifteen km and half marathon runners will do two loops (with different turnaround points). Thirty km runners will do three loops and full marathon runners will do four loops.
