Run with the Wind

Run with the Wind is a community fun run amongst the wind turbines at the Woodlawn wind farm in Tarago, New South Wales.

The fun run is hosted by the owner and operator of the wind farm, Infigen Energy. The fun run is organised by a sports and athlete management-marketing firm, Elite Energy (it is a co-incidence that both have ‘energy’ in their name).

The purpose of the event is two-fold:

  • To build community advocacy through participation and empowerment
  • To provide a platform to raise awareness about renewable energy and offer an opportunity to experience wind turbines up close

Net proceeds from tickets sales go to the local community groups and volunteers.

Run with the Wind 2014 takes place on Sunday, 26 October. Registrations open in August. This year’s distances include 10 kilomteres along the Giant hill and 5 kilometres.
