On Sunday 7 December 2014, thousands of women of all ages and fitness levels will unite in St Kilda’s Catani Gardens (Victoria) for the 2014 Sussan Women’s Fun Run.

The event is Australia’s largest women’s-only fun run and last year a record-breaking 6,500 participants raised an incredible $250,000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

We hope to make this year’s Sussan Women’s Fun Run the biggest and best event yet! We’re encouraging all participants to go “pink for a purpose” and fundraise for BCNA.
