Why Run 4 Farmer Health?

Run 4 Farmer Health is back for its 6th consecutive year!

On Sunday, October 13th we will once again be running for farmer health at the Melbourne Marathon. JOIN US and show your support for the unique work of the Centre and programs we deliver in regional communities. There are different distance runs and a walk to choose from and they all finish with a lap of the MCG to cheers from supporters, family and friends.

The National Centre for Farmer Health has been overwhelmed with support from individuals, industry bodies, government and universities over the few years in our mission to make a difference to farmer’s lives and work to improve the health, wellbeing and safety of our farm men and women, agricultural workers, their families and communities.

Be part of our team and receive the following benefits:

  • Join us in the team marquee post-event
  • It’s an easy way to raise awareness about the health, wellbeing and safety of our agricultural communities
  • It’s a fun opportunity to network and recognise the diversity of our agricultural and rural communities
  • You will get fit for a fantastic reason, get in shape,  challenge yourself and the enjoy the day

We have Physio Aaron on hand in our marquee this year. Aaron worked at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, Hawthorn AFL team and with other professional football and rugby teams including England Female Rugby and England Touch so feel free to stop in. Please BYO towel. Aaron has been sponsored by the Victorian Farmers Federation.
