Portsea Running Festival supporting #Fightingptsdvicpol campaign

The #fightingptsdvicpol campaign is please to announce the Inaugural Portsea Running Festival to be held on Saturday the 10th November 2018

Richard from Perserverance Events is very passionate about #ptsdawareness and #mentalhealth issues for #vicpol members as his father who recently passed away was a Retired Police Officer in England.

Choose between run options 5km, 10km or a half marathon (21.1km) at the beautiful Portsea Running Festival 2018 on Saturday the 10th November 2018. Its an afternoon event which gives you plenty of time to enjoy what the Peninsula has to offer. Spend the day exploring the coastline, tunnels and military history before running a 5km, 10km or half marathon.

All finishers will receive a bespoke medal and head ruff.

Pricing are between $35 – $65

Location: Point Nepean National Park. The park is located at the very tip of the Mornington Peninsula, with outstanding coastal scenery and panoramic views of Bass Strait, the Rip and Port Phillip Bay.

Point Nepean is truly one of Victoria’s beautiful natural landscapes. A special place with so much to see and discover.
