The annual Duckpond Dash at Lake Alford is a great opportunity for people of all ages to get a group of friends together and get walking (or running!).
The 4th Annual Senior’s Week Duckpond Dash will be held on Saturday 18 August at Lake Alford between 9am – 11.30am.
Dashers can register for the Baby-Boomer Bolt, the Grey Nomad Knockout, Club Classic or the Intergenerational Team Relay with a group of friends.
People of all fitness levels are encouraged to enter these novelty races. Weird and wacky costumes are welcome.
For a gold coin donation all entrants will be welcome to enjoy a morning Devonshire Tea and barista coffee with entertainment by the Retro Jukebox Singers.
The Duckpond Dash is a Gympie Regional Council Senior’s Week event hosted in collaboration with the Older Women’s Network – Gympie, U3A and the Gympie Men’s Shed.
Queensland Seniors Week runs from 18 to 26 August, 2018 and celebrates the valuable contribution of older people in our community.
