Lifeline Canberra Fun Run and Half Marathon

On Saturday, 4 November 2017, hundreds of Canberra runners and Lifeline Canberra supporters are expected to flock to Lake Burley Griffin for the fourth annual Lifeline Canberra Fun Run and Half Marathon.

Held to bring together the Canberra community, support healthy lifestyles and raise vital funds for our local 13 11 14 crisis support service, the run is a fun event for families, friends and individuals.

Icon Water Customer and Community Affairs Manager, Lisa Quinn said, “the Run for your Lifeline fun run and half marathon is an amazing event that attracts so many from our community who either love running, or love the idea of helping this important organisation”.

“We look forward to getting our Icon Water team out on the track along with the other thousands of Canberrans” Lisa said.

Lifeline Canberra Fun Run Ambassador Melissa Breen said, “events like the Lifeline Canberra fun run are so important to the Canberra community, because they bring together people from all walks of life to take part in something for such an amazing cause”.

Lifeline Canberra CEO, Carrie Leeson said, “Lifeline Canberra is delighted to have this event on the Canberra sporting calendar for a fourth year! We hope that it raises awareness of the work that Lifeline Canberra does in the community".

“We’re also excited to have on board a new race headquarter, which will be serving healthy food options for runners and supporters!” Carrie said.
