Run 4 Farmer Health - Sunday 16th October
We made it to 100! Lets make 110!

How’s the prep going? We’ll soon find out!
The starters’ gun will be fired in a little over 2 weeks.
To make your experience a special one this year in Melbourne, exclusively for The Run 4 Farmer Health Team, we have organised a marquee, a physio, a massage table and, if you’re really brave, an ice bath.
Our team currently sits on 100 runners and we are looking for 110.
It’s not too late to rope in a friend - running is always better with a buddy.
Someone to share your nervous excitement with at the start line - someone to whinge to after the finish line!
