Gulf & Ranges Optometrists Pichi Richi Marathon Sunday 24th June 2018


For nearly 4 Decades, the Pichi Richi Marathon has been a family fun tradition for people of all ages. Participants love getting out in the community, mixing, mingling, keeping fit and supporting charity at the same time! As a result over safety concerns we have had to review the course to Quorn and as a result new road closures will be in place,  Transportation to each start point is being arranged by the Flinders Range Council (contact Colin Davies directly).  Funds raised from the event are for the Uniting Country SA Itchy Emu program.
 
Walk • Jog • Run - the choice is yours. 4 Separate length legs of the marathon allow you to choose a distance perfect for you time availability or fitness level.
 
All legs follow the same route, simply starting at different times / points along the route, allowing all participants to finish at the Quorn Oval Complex at about the same time for a drink / bite to eat, plus an opportunity to share your experiences with others!
