If you live in real estate in Darwin and want to experience the thrill of Australia Day in a novel way, the Darwin fun run could be the right event for you.
Held on January 26, the annual event kicks off at 6 a.m on the Esplanade and it is a gold coin donation to enter the race.
The circuit is about 4 km long and starts at Bicentennial Park before weaving itself around the beautiful Darwin Waterfront Precinct and finally ending back up at the Esplanade.
If you are registering on the day you will need to arrive before 6 a.m to ensure you have a place in the race.
There will be a rotary barbecue held at 7.15 a.m and the presentations will be made at 9 a.m.
The Darwin Waterfront is a great place for a walk or run, and you could make use of the area on days other than Australia day itself.
Those who enter go in the draw to win a handcrafted pendant from Creative Jewellers worth $1,000.
Families can all enter on the same form and it is worth noting that wheelchairs, prams and strollers are welcome during the race, making it a family friendly affair.
However, you will need to leave your pets, scooters, ripstiks, bikes, roller blades and skates at your real estate in Darwin.
