Event description

Description

Challenge yourself to either run, cycle, kayak, pack march or walk, from and to Bellerive Beach Park! Help raise money and awareness towards people coping with issues arising from depression, anxiety, peri-natal depression and post traumatic stress disorder, affecting current and ex-servicing people and their families, supporting The White Cloud Foundation.

Trooper Matthew Millhouse served in the Armoured Core of The Australian Army for four years, which included two tours of Iraq. Matthew passed away in August 2015 from Young Onset Dementia, which was triggered by a traumatic brain injury he incurred in 2004 when his troop was targeted by a car bomb.

About The Matthew Millhouse Salute

Registrations open at 7.30am. At 8am there will be short welcomes from organisers and key speakers including our Patron Garth Callendar, followed by a short military tribute to Trooper Matthew Millhouse as a fitting send-off to participants. Legs will begin departing from 8.30am. There will be egg and bacon rolls and drinks available to participants at the finish line!

Run Legs (including a family run/walk leg)

This year there are three run legs to choose from depending on your running fitness levels - 4km, 12km and 16km. All following the beautiful Derwent River's edge from Bellerive Beach Park towards Simmon's Park, Lindisfarne and back. The 16km leg goes the full distance of the route to Simmon's Park and back, the 12km leg turns around under the Tasman Bridge, and the 4km leg turns around at Kangaroo Bay and is particularly for the family/kids who can choose to run or walk. All registrations include a Salute t-shirt.

Bike Leg

The bike leg this year is slightly shorter than last year at just over 40km, and more manageable for those less experienced with cycling (not as many big hills!), but still provides a challenge and a pleasant ride. Departing Bellerive Beach Park and heading towards Howrah and Lauderdale, through Acton Park towards Cambridge, around Mt Rumney and back towards Bellerive Beach. All registrations include a professional racing jersey.

Kayak Leg

There are two kayak legs on offer this year. A full course of 10km departing Bellerive Beach and following the Derwent River down into Lindisfarne Bay turning at Simmons Park and returning to Bellerive Beach. The shorter course is great for those less experienced or adults kayaking with their children, a 4km course turning at the Tasman Bridge. All registrations include a Salute t-shirt.

Pack March

The pack march will again follow the same route as the runners and go the full 16km course from Bellerive Beach Park to Simmons Park, Lindisfarne and return. All registrations include a Salute t-shirt.
