This year’s Strait Link Burnie Ten fun run will take on a slightly different look.
The 10 km event on October 29, will start an hour and a quarter earlier than the past 39 events, moving to a new start time of 10 am, with a free street party to follow from 11.
The event will again include a shorter 5km option for those not up to a full on assault, with the introduction this year of an 800m event for children under 13.
With a new Australian 10 km record being set by last year’s winner Victorian runner Jack Rayner, event director Richard Welsh is expecting a elite field again this year for outright honours.
However, with the remaining 98 per cent of the field being made up of everyday runners, joggers and walkers, the event is being promoted as Australia’s premier community 10 kay fun run.
