Event Information 

Welcome to our seventh round of the 2023 winter season and our premier 5km road event! 

This event celebrates the life of David “Fitzy” Fitzsimons, one of Australia’s leading distance runners in the 1970s. Fitzy won 8 Australian Championships over 5000m and 10000m, including a double on three occasions. A dual Olympian, an Olympic finalist over 10000m, a 6th placing in the 1974 Commonwealth Games and a bronze medal over 5000m at the 1977 World Cup made Dave Fitzsimons one of the greats. He was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and passed away at age 58. 

Come and honour a legend and support finding a cure! 


Bring the whole family and join us for the Kids' Athletics Clinic starting at 8:45 AM!
