The RACT City to Casino Fun Run & Walk was established in 1973 with 199 participants in the inaugural run. It is the second oldest fun run in Australia and the largest in Tasmania. It is a non-profit event organised and managed by a committee of four volunteers.
In 2013 we were delighted to welcome RACT as naming rights sponsor. RACT’s strong local community focus aligns perfectly with our goals of encouraging widespread participation within the community.
Three of our sponsors have been with us for the entire journey – Wrest Point, The Mercury and Powerade. Without the remarkable commitment of these organisations the event would not be possible. We also greatly appreciate the support of our many other sponsors and supporters and over 200 race-day volunteers and officials including the members of Athletics South athletic clubs, Surf Lifesaving and Girl Guides.
