Run with the Wind is a community fun run located amongst the wind turbines at the Woodlawn wind farm near Tarago, New South Wales. Woodlawn wind farm is approximately a 45-minute drive from Canberra and 3 hours from Sydney. The wind farm comprises 23 wind turbines and has been operational since October 2011.
The fun run is hosted by the owner and operator of the wind farm, Infigen Energy. The event management for fun run is organised by a sports and athlete management-marketing firm, 100% Events.
The purpose of the event is two-fold:
- To build community advocacy through participation and empowerment
- To provide a platform for raising awareness about renewable energy and experiencing wind turbines up close
Net proceeds from tickets sales go to the local community groups and volunteers.
