Another Spectacular Start to a Sunday Morning in Kinglake
Sunday 27 May 2018 – an Ellimatta Youth Fundraiser
The Kinglake Fun Run is back presented to you by Murrindindi Shire Council and Ellimatta Youth. This promises to deliver a spectacular start to a Sunday morning for Kinglake and surrounds and Melbourne’s runners, joggers and walkers.
Ideal for serious and the not so serious runners, for the young and old, and for friends and families, this 4.2km – 14.4km course will wind through the stunning surrounds of Kinglake.
Starting at the Ellimatta Youth Centre this event will take entrants through the outskirts of town, along paths, past farms and bush delivering picturesque mountain views and a great challenge.
With a carnival atmosphere that will be enjoyed by all, this annual fundraising event is the only opportunity to partake in an organised fun run around Kinglake. Don’t miss it.
It’s going to be beautiful.
Event Registration Open Now – EARLY BIRD SPECIAL UNTIL 29th APRIL!

About the Fundraiser Host
Ellimatta Youth Inc was established in a response to an identified need to support the youth of Kinglake affected so devastatingly by the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009.
Years later the service is truly established within the Kinglake community offering activities that contribute to positive mental health, case management support, youth enterprise and employment support and personal development and leadership opportunities to young people aged 10-25 years.
Ellimatta Youth is now making instrumental steps to becoming a more independent operation through fundraising activities.
The idea of a fun run was born out of a desire to promote healthy lifestyles, create community engagement and share the growth of Kinglake with others.
We invite you to join us.
We are super excited to announce our Major naming rights sponsor, Murrindindi Shire Council. Thank you Murrindindi Shire.
