About the Glenorchy Fun Run



The Glenorchy Fun Run is the main promotional event run by the Northern Suburbs Athletic Club each year with about 700 participants turning out in the middle of winter.  The event is the clubs largest fundraiser each year.  ​


The idea to hold a 5km and 10km fun run in the Northern Suburbs of Hobart was conceived by club members Mike Pace and Brian Sutherland in the early 90's with the first event in 1991.  The first few events were held as a celebration of Tasmania Day and the male and female winners were each awarded a large Tasmanian Medal.  


With a couple of course and month changes, the Glenorchy Fun Run has now found its place on the Tasmanian Fun Run Calendar in late July at the Derwent Entertertainment Centre.
