20 SEPTEMBER 2020 AT 06:00 – 21 SEP AT 21:00
To take part on 20 September, you can run, walk or cycle anywhere you like. It could be in your suburb, town, village, in a city near you, past an iconic building or landmark.
While we in Victoria are a little bit restricted, you can run alone or in a family group (of course complying with social distancing rules with others around and not out for longer than an hour) – don’t forget to wear something that identifies you as a Torch Runner or Special Olympics athlete, family member, staff member or supporter.
This is not about a race or how far you run it is all about the effort to participate and staying together whilst apart. It doesn’t have to be 5km either. You can run 10km if you want! (or 4km or 2km or even 1km).
