Family Sports Day
The Family Sports Day, held on Sunday morning, has been run by the Alice Spring Volunteer Bushfire Brigade for at least the last 25 years. The morning often begins with the sound of the fire truck siren throughout the campground rallying the kids down to the racecourse so events can begin. Events consist of Running, Sack and Three-Legged Races for all comers under 16 years and finishes with the ever-popular Lolly Scramble.
The Kids’ Events are followed by the Donny Anderson Memorial Mile seeing competitors Run, Walk, Crawl and sometimes even stagger the full length of the Racetrack. For those adults who survive The Mile
there’s another chance to take home the cash in the 100m Sprints.
Then it’s time to get your teams of 5 together for the Tug-of-War Competition before the events conclude with the always entertaining Ladies Cow Tail Toss.
Everyone is encouraged to come down to the track and get involved.
Entrants are able to register at the Racetrack Shed on Saturday (from 12-4pm) and for those under 18 years please make sure you bring a parent or guardian to sign the consent form.
