The countdown is on!
With less than 50 days to go to #Run4FarmerHealth at the Melbourne Marathon Festival, it’s time to dust off your running shoes, sign up and start training!
Run, jog or walk your way through the streets of Melbourne and finish with a lap of the MCG. Thanks to the support from the Harcourts Foundation you are welcome to join us at the team village after your event and high five each other on a job well done.
All our runners will receive a Run 4 Farmer Health visor and the next 50 runners to sign up will also receive a Wannon Water water bottle. 
So get outside, get active and support the programs that make a difference to farmers’ lives.
