Event description


Bring family, friends and neighbours and join in the fun at the Bally Bolt Fun Run on Sunday 17 March 2019!

Whether you’re a casual runner, a competitive athlete, or someone just wanting to have fun, this is a fantastic way to support your children and our local community as well as raise money for the new young adult hospice in Manly. We are delighted to welcome pupils from not only Balgowlah Heights Public School, but also Balgowlah North Public School and Balgowlah Boys who will help us make this a truly community event.

Local roads around the beautiful Tania Park will be closed for the run, making it a safe event for everyone. There are a choice of two distances - 2.7km or 5km. The 5km race will have timing chips so that you can race the clock and compete for prizes. The shorter distance is flat for participants of all levels of fitness to enjoy and all participants will receive a special Bally Bolt wristband.

You can sprint, run, jog or walk and we encourage family and team entries. Children under four and children in strollers are free. However, if you would like a bib for your little one you will need to register them. Please note the final amount on checkout includes an Eventbrite payment processing fee.

Don't forget your Bally Bolt trucker hat when you order! All profits from the hats go to the Manly young adult hospice.

Want to run as a team? Get involved and register your team now. Check the FAQs or www.ballybolt.com for more information. Minimum of 6 per team and there are team prizes to be won!

The Bally Bolt is raising valuable funds for our local schools but this year we are delighted to announce we are supporting the new adolescent and young adult hospice being built on the old Manly Hospital site. You can find more information about the hospice on our website at www.ballybolt.com

And of course, once you've done all the hard work, come and get some rest and refreshments and join in the fun at the Bally Bolt Fair after the race.
