Gundy is one of the glorious small towns in the Upper Hunter Shire. The region is a slice of paradise with goodnessgravel in all directions

Bring your gravel or e-Gravel … or … if you don’t have a gravel bike, do the loop on your MTB or e-MTB.

For those coming along for this ‘shorter’ 75 kilometre course, you will still experience plenty of fine riding as you pedal through the Upper Hunter Valley. Please do not forget that number of 1,655 metres of ascent, take your time and settle in to enjoy this course.

This event will commence after all the riders for the 135 kilometre distance have departed from Gundy, leaving from the Recreation Grounds . Riders start at 242 metres above sea-level (ASL) and head North. For the first 8km riders will be riding along a lovely stretch of country tarmac before crossing the Isis River and soon after, goodnessgravel awaits.

The Maitland River Run offers a picturesque 4km course starting and finishing at the new Maitland Regional Athletics Centre. This world class facility will make for a exciting and interesting run experience. But don’t panic… we still have plenty of River, in the River Run. You can either run/walk the 1 Lap 4km course, 2 lap 8km course or 3 lap 12km course. There is also a 5 lap Half Marathon course.

Get active for breast cancer and ovarian cancer research and register for the The Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic by running or walking the Newcastle event.

The MDC walk/run event will be held on Sunday 12 May and this year the event is raising funds and awareness for vital breast AND ovarian cancer research.

This year the Newcastle event will take place along the Stockton Foreshore, from Griffith Park – East of Stockton Ferry Terminal, Stockton.

In addition to the 5km walk or run, there will be food and market stalls and more!  It is family friendly and an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate those people affected by breast and ovarian cancer and help raise money for life saving research.
