February Womens & Girls’ Jogalong

YMCA of Canberra Runner’s Club is celebrating 40 years of the Jogalong at their February event!

A number of the ten participants from the first ever Jogalong will be coming along, and the Runner’s Club hope as many people as possible who have ever run this iconic event will join them.

February is also Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, so this event will run in support of OvCan, a local ovarian cancer information and support group.

There are three events on the day:

  • a 6km handicap event open to women and girls
  • a 3km non-handicap open to women and girls and boys aged under 13, and
  • a 1.6km handicap event open to girls and boys aged under 13

All three events start at 8.00 am in Weston Park, near Prescott Lane (and the miniature train). All three courses are out and back along the bike path around Weston Park. Free childcare is available for children under 5. Further details are available on the Jogalong website.


Registration is free for members. The cost for non-members is $10 for adults and $5 for under 18s. Registration is also available on the day. Online registrations close Friday 2 February at midnight.

Donations to OvCan 
Personal donations to OvCan can also be made through this site – you do not have to be a participant to donate. Donations can also be made at the event.
