The Manly Virtual Fun Run & Walk is all about supporting the local community. Not only is it a great day out, but your entry fee goes directly to the Rotary Club of Manly.
Unfortunately, this year, it’s not the best idea to hold a large group run, though you can still get involved and raise some money for community projects by being part of the virtual fun run.
Signing up is simple, and as long as you have a phone, you can do your run from anywhere on any date between 2-6 September, or take on the original route.
Rotary is volunteer run, with members who pay their own admin fees, meaning all funds raised can help the community with capital works. We only give money to assets and help with tangible projects, so you always know where your money ends up.
With lots of smaller charities struggling in 2020, running for a cause – one of our designated charities – is a great way to help them.
Get involved, enjoy a great day out and support your local community!

"I'm going to be giving it a go again this year and I'd encourage you to too...
it's a $15 race fee but for that you're doing your part for our local community, get out there and have some fun!"
OVER $1,500,000 RAISED FOR LOCAL CHARITIES
A Rotary CLUB OF MANLY Project
Now in its 11th year, The Manly Scenic Fun Run, a Rotary Club of Manly project, has raised over $1.5m for local charities. Much of what we do is in teams – fundraising, and project planning to deliver tangible results in the areas of Youth, Community, and International Service support.
