Annual Lakers 5/25 Run

Pencil in a Sunday in late June as the date for this year’s 5-25 run. This run involves your choice of 1-5 laps of a 5km circuit along the beach front (hence the name 5-25 as you chose how far you want to go), stay tuned for more info.

This is a perfect hit out for those heading to gold coast for the marathon the following weekend or to just find out where your fitness is at.

Meet at 8 for 8.15am start at west beach surf life savings club corner of Seaview and west beach road. We have a flat 5 km course you can complete 1-5 times. This is also our first mid winter catch up post cairns so if you just want to come and socialise then get along for breakfast in the surf club as people finish their run.

To get you into race mode, the club has organised a 5 to 25 km run hit out.
