A family fun run with a difference - run, walk or push a pram for Palestine!

The inaugural Run For Palestine - Adelaide, 6 November 2016, with thanks to Darren West of Event Strategies Timing & Transponder Services.

A great family day out to raise awareness, funds and hope for a fair go and a just peace for our friends in Palestine.

  • 5km RUN (1 lap)
  • 10km RUN (2 laps)
