Willaura Farm to Pub

Saturday, 25 February 2017

Willaura, VIC

Run/Walk Road/Path/Park Short Medium Long 5K Bike Road Race

The current edition of this event is on 24 February 2018.

The Willaura Farm to Pub on Saturday, 25 February 2017 is a fun run & walk and bike ride finishing in Willaura, Victoria.

The Farm to Pub's origins can be traced to the 2003 Melbourne Half-Marathon. Philip Joyce and his brother-in-law Gerald McCarthy both entered this event and went head to head on Beach Rd. When Philip was a surprise victor over Gerald, the world was shocked. Gerald returned home to Kernan St that night in tears, vowing revenge.

Damien Joyce had also competed in the half-marathon (a late entrant under Jules Norman's name) and thought of the perfect way that Phil and Gerry could have a re-match without waiting another 12 months. Why not run from the family farm to the Willaura Pub that Christmas? And so the Farm to Pub was born.
