Event Information 

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!
