Prizes are up for grabs for the first three teams across the finish line and a number of spot prizes will be awarded during the event.

A $5 per participant, entry fee secures a spot in the race, as well as a competition t-shirt and refreshments upon course completion.

“The event links young people to services and support in their community,” Mr Bolt said.
