Entries Close: Wednesday 25th May 2022, 11:59am (Midday)

Location: St Anne’s Winery (Bendigo), 3 Belvoir Park Road, Ravenswood VIC 3453 (Google Maps)

What a way to kick-start the 2022 XCR individual rounds!

St Anne’s Bendigo offers sweeping landscapes of stunning views featuring picturesque wetlands, ancient River Red Gums and vineyards. This is a runner’s paradise. Why not make a weekend of it and bring the family, and take part in the FAMILY3K walk/run.

St. Anne’s winery will have a fully licensed bar operating in The Big Shed, with live music from duo Harlequin from 12-3 pm. With an array of food available by St Anne’s (Beef Brisket Burger, Kransky & Pizza) and Big Red Food Van (Fish & Chips, Chicken Tenders & Chicken Schnitzels) as well as complimentary wine tasting, St Anne’s cellar door will operate for the event.

Bibs: In the 2022/23 season, there will be no cloth bibs issued. We are committed to reducing our footprint on the environments we use. Your new timing bibs are now made from hardier material, designed to last the whole season. Please ensure you care for your bibs, e.g. do not machine wash, do not fold. Lost or damaged bibs will incur a new bib fee.


PLEASE NOTE THAT NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED WITHIN ST ANNE’S WINERY
