Bendigo Ford Fun Run

Sunday 2 March 2025

Join Mailing List

The Bendigo Ford Fun Run will return to the streets of Bendigo on Sunday 2 March 2025 and we want YOU to be a part of it.

We’ve had people join in as toddlers right through into their 80s and they have all been made welcome to run, walk or roll for a good cause in Bendigo Health.

For the little ones there’s the 1km Kids Dash, presented by Jenny’s Early Learning Centre.

For many people, the pick of the bunch is the 5km Fun Run / Walk, incorporating the TSFN Business Challenge.

For those who want a challenge, there’s the picutreseque 10km Fun Run, which leads participants past Lake Weeroona and to White Hills and back.

For those who want to really stretch the legs, the Half Marathon (21.1km) presents the biggest (and longest challenge) on the day on a course that provides plenty of interaction with other runners on course, but also plenty of space to find your stride.

Will you join in the fun? No matter your pace or place, you’re invited to join us help add to our fundraising tally of $125,000 over the past three years for Bendigo Health Foundation.

Can’t participate? Then why not donate to the Bendigo Health Foundation and come down to Rosalind Park in March to cheer on the runners and enjoy the event village atmosphere.

The beautiful Rosalind Park in downtown Bendigo will once again play host to the start and finish and will attract runners, joggers, walkers, families, and wheelchair participants from across central Victoria and beyond.

This community-led event features picturesque courses and a family-friendly event village location in the heart of the the gold rush city of Bendigo.
