Cherry Chase here this Sunday

Young’s annual Cherry Chase fun run and colour run is on this Sunday and organisers are gearing up for a massive day of fun, fitness and community spirit.

Committee member Ben Cooper is encouraging local residents to jump on board and support a fun event that gives back to the community.

“We have people coming from all over the region to be a part of the event and now encourage locals to register and participate in a fun and social event that raises money for our local community,” he said.

Cooper said it is forecast to be a beautiful day at Chinamans Dam on Sunday making it perfect for a fun run. 

“With a cracker of a day forecast, the running visors all entrants receive will be put to good use,” Cooper said.

All entrants will receive free sausage sandwiches, water, timed running bibs, a visor, rainbow shoelaces and a finishers medal.

“Thanks to our amazing sponsors, we are able to deliver a value for money event to our community.”

The day will commence at 8:45 as the 10km runners hit the circuit followed by the 5km run/walk at 9am and the colour run kicking off at 11am.

“Regardless of your fitness level, there is an event for everyone. We are encouraging people to just get in and have a go. Whether you want to walk, cheer or volunteer, we would love to see a big crowd out at Chinamans Dam on Sunday,” Cooper said.

Chinamans Dam will host live entertainment throughout the event and the farmers market will be bringing their produce as well.

Early season cherries will be for sale and there will be a coffee van on site for the pre-run caffeine hit.

For those people who have not committed to the event yet, registrations are still open.

You can register online at or we will be having a final manual registration day on Saturday at Sportspower from 9am – 2pm.

Whilst the committee would prefer people to register prior to the event, they will be able to take registrations on the day if people decide to jump on board at the last minute.

‘Sunday is shaping up to be a great day.

“Our committee would like to thank everyone in the community who has supported this event in any way,” Cooper said.
