“Having exciting things to do for locals is important too, and an exciting events calendar plays a big role in the liveability of any city.”
The Moyjil to Merri Trail Run was one of the dozen events to secure Activate Warrnambool grant funding, with Race Director Dave McIntyre saying that without the grant, the event wouldn’t be possible.
“In this environment, a new event is a big risk, but with a bit of backing you can plan with some confidence,” he said.
“We’ll have 10km, 20km and 30km events. We might even have a 5km, we’re still finalising all of the planning.
“It will be good for casual runners looking for a race to build towards as well as more serious runners to test themselves.”
