The 65K 4 65 Roses Walkathon on Saturday, 22 February 2020 is a fun walk and endurance event held to raise funds for the fight against Cystic Fibrosis, a life threatening genetic condition affecting thousands of young Australians.
This iconic walk takes place around Sydney's Iron Cove Bay, with a base camp at Leichhardt Park, and is open to friends, families, thrill-seekers and just about anyone looking for a great day out.
65K 4 65 Roses is named after the ultra-marathon distance of 65 kilometres, and uses the name 65 Roses - which is the nickname for cystic fibrosis. But don't let the 65km course scare you off, you can walk or run as many 7km laps as you want. Runners are welcome too!
