‘‘For every child registered with a school, $5 of their entry fee will go back to that school for sporting equipment,’’ she said.
‘‘St Joseph’s College have already indicated they will be donating their returned money to East Timor.’’
Competitors will also experience a new timing system at the event, with runners to wear timing bracelets this year.
Prizes will be given to those finishing first and second in the open 10km and 5km events and the top three finishes in the under 16 and under 13 races.
Money raised from the event will go to the Moama Recreation Reserve, with its next project to upgrade the netball clubrooms showers and toilets.
