Registrations are now open and the first 200 people to sign up will receive a free event t-shirt.

Pilbara Ports Authority General Manager Marine Phil Christy said PPA is pleased to be partnering on the delivery of this event.

“We are proud to be part of the communities in which we operate, and this is a great opportunity to bring the Port Hedland community together,” Mr Christy said.

“I’ll be participating in the event along with some colleagues and we’re all looking forward to some friendly competition and challenging ourselves, while taking in the spectacular views of the harbour and coastline.

“This is a family friendly event which is open to all fitness levels, and I encourage everyone to register and come along on the day.”
