Sri Chinmoy Diwali Twilight Beach Run - 10km, 5km & 2.5km
A fast and flat and stunningly beautiful waterfront course
About the event
Diwali is the festival of lights. It symbolises the spiritual "victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance".
We will celebrate in our own way with a novelty run along the Wynnum foreshore. This is a beautiful course, nice and flat and with the ocean always in view. Every runner will get glow sticks to wear for the race and you can add your own bits of flare as well.
Following the race will be a vegetarian sausage sizzle at the finish area in Bayside Park.
To keep everyone safe, including the volunteers, we will have the 10km race turning around at the 2.5km point for the first 5km and repeating. The kids will still do their 1.5km loop with adults running with them (hopefully parents can help with this).
All details of the course will be covered in the race briefing which will be 10mins before the start.
