WHY HEPBURN SPRINGS?
This year we want to bring people to Hepburn, Central Victoria (the spa region) to experience a little known but beautiful bush track close to the well-known Spa Complex. We are also organising this walk/run in collaboration with the Swiss Italian Festival which will give participants the opportunity to experience leading out the Festival Parade on the Saturday morning. As the walk/run completes around lunchtime you can experience this cultural event enjoying the glorious food, music and performances of the Swiss and Italian communities of Victoria only metres from the finish line.
