The challenge for teams will be to complete as many 3 km laps as possible in the allotted time period, i.e., 4 hours (07h30 – 11h30).  Nominate a team captain, decide on a cool name & theme for your team and bring along heaps of team spirit!

Runners will be timed by the organisers of the event.

Involve non-runners, family, friends, companies, etc. by encouraging them to sponsor your team! This way we can ALL show GRATITUDE.

It is all about team work and supporting your team mates, while they are soaking in the exquisite surrounds of Dornier Wines. There will be live music, prizes, lucky draws, enthusiastic athletes and sponsors supporting a worthy cause!
