Introducing ‘Woodlea Joggernaughts’ for R4K Woodlea Short Course

Woodlea is thrilled to announce that we are the first-ever sponsors of the Herald Sun/Transurban Run for the Kids (R4K) Short Course, to be held on Saturday, April 7. 

The brand new “Woodlea Short Course” is 5.6km long and has a new home in Docklands. Starting in front of Marvel Stadium on Harbour Esplanade, racegoers will head onto the West Gate Freeway and over the Bolte Bridge, before leaving CityLink at Footscray Road and passing the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel. The course finishes along the water at Newquay Promenade.

Woodlea residents are encouraged to get involved and join Victoria’s largest fun run as part of team Woodlea, cleverly named Woodlea Joggernaughts by Woodlea resident Saurabh Madhura.

In the lead up to the event, a number of training sessions will be held within the Woodlea community and are aimed at creating a positive and social environment for participants to train together, boost motivation and increase health and fitness, all whilst raising important funds for the Good Friday Appeal.

Aimed at all fitness levels and ages, anyone from children, parents and even babies in prams can get involved, no matter their goals or capabilities.

From walkers and slow joggers to semi-active joggers and fast walkers and the active and semi-active runners and joggers, each participant will have specific coloured zones to enjoy the run at their own pace.

The event is Victoria’s biggest fun-run with over 30,000+ participants expected to be either walking, running or jogging the streets of Melbourne.

Registration for the run and the team is easy, participants just need to visit the website and search for the Woodlea Joggernauts.

Registration for the event is $60 and includes a team participant pack in Woodlea’s famous orange. All registrations fees go towards the Good Friday appeal, with R4K successfully raising $17.1 million to date.
