HERE'S an ideal chance to lace up your shoes and participate in the inaugural run for resilience at Mangoplah.

The event, hosted by Active Farmers, will be held on Sunday, October 11 at the Mangoplah Football Ground.

The event will consist of three cross country-style courses covering 21km, 10km and 5km distances which will begin at the Mangoplah oval then wind through local farmland, before finishing back at the football ground.

"The 5km course is nice and flat and would make a great Sunday stroll - or jog for families to do together," said Active Farmers Event Manager, Alison Skinner.

Staggered starts will be implemented for each distance and participants are encouraged to turn up no more than 30 minutes prior to their event, participate and then head home. T

o ensure there is still a positive vibe at the event DJ Leighton Marshall will be spinning his tunes and Three Dutchies will also be on site catering for everyone present.

Registrations close on October 4. For those entering the event visit www.activefarmers.com.au/runforresilience2020
