After the run, there will be range of activities and attractions at Cemetery Beach Park for the whole family, including yoga by the beach, market stalls, and a mini-run for children.

The first 250 people to sign up on the Town website will also receive a limited-edition running shirt.

Pilbara Ports General Manager Marine, Phil Christy, said that they were pleased to be partnering in 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.

“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.”

Town of Port Hedland Mayor Peter Carter said the Town was pleased to deliver events which added vibrancy and built a sense of community.
