    City to Lake Fun Run

    Some of the bikes ready to go...2001

    The City to Lake Fun Run is the largest free fun run in Australia. It is usually held the second Sunday in September each year. In 2006 it will be held on Sunday, 10 September.

    People can run, walk, skate, ride a bike, cartwheel or whatever you like... The race usually takes anywhere between about 30 minutes and 1.5 hours to finish the 9 km track (which goes from the Civic Centre to Apex Park at Lake Albert). Dogs are also welcome in the 'race' as long as they are friendly and restrained. ;)

    At the end there is a BBQ and presentations...a great way to spend some time chatting and relaxing. Everyone who enters gets a certificate at the end and your time gets published in the local newspaper a few days later...

    There are also a few other things on in Wagga on the same weekend so it is a great time to visit Wagga. The Jazz Festival, Farmers Markets and some other events are also on over that weekend... :)

    Equipment: Make sure you have good walking/running shoes and comfortable clothes.

    A 'best dressed' prize is also on offer for the person or people who dress up the most interesting... :)

    Touch Football is huge in Wagga

    Wagga has been named the "City of Good Sports"...there is a huge variety of sports facilities here and some are the best in the area/state/country...

    A lot of top sports people in Australia grew up in Wagga...some very well known cricket, rugby, AFL footy players etc. We have a Sporting Hall of Fame near the Botanic Gardens for those keen on sports.

    If you need some information on any particular sports facility in Wagga I recommend you telephone the Visitor Information Centre on 02 69269621...

    Skate Park

    The Wagga Skate Park was opened in 2001... It is a cement park especially made for skate boarders, BMX bikes, roller blades etc. It is very well used by many kids in Wagga.

    The Skate Park is free to use but must be shared with all using it...

    Equipment: Make sure you take your own safety gear and whatever it is you want to 'ride'...

    Murrumbidgee River

    If you visit Wagga in summer then swimming in the river is a nice way to spend some time... Or if you are not the swimming type then get some sort of floating device and float from one point to another... It's a great way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon... :)

    Bikeway

    Wagga has some great bikeways around town... If you drop into the Visitor Information Centre you can pick up a brochure with all of the details and a map.

    The bikeways are either off road or on road and there are also some BMX facilities (jumps etc) for those interested.
