CareFlight Woodford to Glenbrook Classic 2019

Event date: Sunday, 30 June, 2019 

Hundreds of keen runners and cyclists will once again make their way through scenic bushland in the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park in support of CareFlight through this classic event.

This year’s Woodford to Glenbrook (W2G) will continue to be split into a 25km event and a 5km event.

Participants are supported the full length of the track by Rural Fire Service crews, who will be stationed along the way providing first aid and drinks. A CareFlight doctor and St John Ambulance volunteers will also attend to lend their support. The events will share the facilities.

Both events will finish with a community fair-style reception in the beautiful Euroka Clearing. Families are welcome to join in the fun – there’ll be activities for the kids, food stalls and displays. Presentations are made throughout the day.
