Run for a Cause

The Ballarat Foundation is pleased to bring Run for a Cause to a new, exciting location for 2023. Join us on Sunday 19 November at our new Event Village based in Lucas Town Centre. Our new courses will be utilising the beautiful streets and paths of Lucas as well as giving participants the opportunity to run down the centre of Sturt Street and through the Arch!

Run for a Cause is the largest community fun run and walking event in the Ballarat area with all proceeds going directly to the Ballarat Christmas Appeal, proudly supported by 3BA 102.3FM.

Run for a Cause brings together schools, businesses and community groups to participate as a community in either a 12km or 6km event, or as part of the Kids' Dash.
