Runners Molli Johns, Billi Johns, Jack Elliott, Madison Elliott, Amy Wright, Victoria Farrell and Chelsey Wright are running on Sunday.
The Moama Soundshell will echo to the sounds of running feet when the Run 4 Fun in Moama is held on Sunday.
Runners of all ages will compete in 3km, 5km and 10km events, with the longer races starting at 8.30am.
The 3km event, for under 13s, starts at 10am.
Organiser Kelli Johns hopes to attract a similar number to the 300 racers last year, with a new rebate system aimed at attracting more school children.
‘‘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.
Competitors can register online until 9pm today, otherwise they can get forms at Charles L King and Co First National, contact Johns on 0400 800 568 or Moama Football Netball Club players can give forms to their coaches.
