Moonee Valley Classic Fun Run (Saturday March 3rd, 2012)

Moonee Valley Classic Fun Run

Moonee Valley Athletics Centre, Moonee Valley
Saturday 3 March, 2012

With just two weeks before the annual Moonee Valley Classic gets underway again for the 15th time at the Moonee Valley athletics centre, the team at MaxNRG personal training is sending out a reminder to all Moonee Valley locals and any running/walking enthusiasts out there to get involved!

This is a fantastic event sponsored by some big name organisations including Bendigo Bank, Brooks and most fittingly the Moonee Valley Weekly. Participants have the choice between a 5km or 10km run or a 5km walk – you can pick the challenge that most suits you! There will also be entertainment throughout the entire event PLUS a jumping castle, face painting and other great activities for the kids.

So throw on your runners, grab some friends and enjoy the scenic views of the Maribyrnong River while you break a sweat and get moving.
