THE COURSRE

START/FINISH: PEACE PARK, LENNOX GARDENS

South-western side of Commonwealth Avenue Bridge Northern End of Lennox Gardens, North from car park off Flynn Drive, Yarralumla, ACT 2600

The run and walk will go anti-clockwise around Lake Burley Griffin, first along the south side of the Lake, then cross over at the Kings Avenue Bridge to the north side of the Lake, and cross back gain to the south side over Commonwealth Avenue Bridge to return to Lennox Gardens finish line.

Note there will be no official timing services provided for runners and walkers this year, due to prohibitive costs. The R4P Event organisers have instead chosen to divert those costs to increase its final donation to a deserving charity in Palestine.

T-SHIRT SIZING

Australians for Palestine designed the popular t-shirts used in the inaugural Run for Palestine held in Canberra.
The white t-shirts feature a version of Handala the much-loved iconic faceless refugee child first created by Palestinian artist and cartoonist Naji Al Ali. The logo was designed by artist Dora McPhee for Run for Palestine. The text reads: RUN FOR PALESTINIAN HUMAN RIGHTS.
If you received this t-shirt last year, we encourage you to wear it for this year’s event. Alternatively these t-shirts will be on sale before the event at the registration desk. T-shirts can be purchased from 9:00am onwards for $20. The t-shirts are unisex.

The t-shirts are unisex.
