Break into spring! Easter Bunny Hoodoo Fiver (and Kids Easter Egg Challenge)

Bring on spring with the first run on the Kimberley calendar. A great 5km loop on the Hoodoo trail along the beautiful St Mary's River. Depending on the weather it could be dry, muddy, snowy or a bit of all 3: be prepared to get dirty and have fun!


This year the race will be on March 31 (Easter Sunday) at 11am, which means it will be April Fools day in Australia, at least! Don your favourite Easter bonnet for extra credit.


Meet at the Hoodoo Trail parking lot: heading out of Marysville toward Cranbrook, it's on the right a few 100m past the North Star Rail Trail.


Registration/check-in is 10:00 am - 10:45 am, with the main race starting at 11:00 am.
