Description

Georges River Council presents Race Around St George as part of Youth Week 2017.

National Youth Week is coming up real soon (31st March - 9th April)! So what better way to celebrate than with a day of kooky challenges, mysterious clues, free food, glorious giveaways, prizes and general greatness?! The Race Around Georges River will see teams of 4 pounding the pavement for 3 hours. They will navigate their way through 8 pitstops on their noble quest for prizes, free stuff and of course GLORY (Do you wanna be the very best like no one ever was?) There will also be a prize for the best dressed team - so put on your thinking cap and swagged out slacks. Registrations close at 3pm on Tuesday 11th April so get it together and get moving!
