Final preparations have started for Sunday’s inaugural Henley Friends Inc Fun Day.

The Kyabram not-for-profit organisation is still seeking more people to take part in a 8km walk, run or bicycle ride, or for keen cyclists a 70km ride.

All events will start from 14 to 16 Station St at 9am on Sunday.

The 8km walk, run and bicycle ride will take a route around Kyabram including the 4.4km Kyabram Walking and Cycling Trail that runs past Kyabram Fauna Park Lakes, and along South Boundary Rd and Breen Ave.

Cyclists doing the 70km ride will follow a return route to Rushworth.

Route maps, lucky number draws, free water and a free sausage sizzle will be provided for all those taking part, while cakes, tea, coffee and refreshments will also be on sale on the day for spectators who want to cheer the participants along.

Pre-event bookings are encouraged to avoid a rush on the day and can be made at Xzillerator Cafe, Albion Arcade or Wickedly Deevine Bakery/Cafe, 226 Allan St, while bicycle ride entries can be made at Body Parts Health and Fitness, 193 Fenaughty St.

Those needing to register on Sunday morning are requested to arrive for 8.30am to ensure there are no delays to the 9am start.

Entry for the walk, run and shorter bicycle ride costs $20 for families, $10 for adults and $5 for children and the longer bicycle ride is $40, and everyone is reminded to slip, slop, slap and bring a drink bottle.

Henley Friends Inc aims to help disadvantaged people, youth and small community support organisations in the district and create a community housing facility in Kyabram.
