The annual G’day Solomon Islands Fun Run is on again this Saturday 22 October and it’s expected to be the biggest yet with over 4,000 participants already registered.

Gold sponsor SolRice has made it all possible by providing 5,000 G’day Solomon Islands Fun Run t-shirts for the first 5,000 people to register.

Nick Ellis, General Manager of SolRice, said he was thrilled to be part of the event for the third consecutive year.

“The G’day Solomon Islands Fun Run sends an important message about how healthy living can help people feel better, live longer and achieve their goals,” said Mr Ellis.

“Good nutrition and a balanced diet is part of leading a healthy lifestyle and SolRice is proud to contribute to so many Solomon Islanders’ daily diets. We’re also proud to be working with the Solomon Islands Government, with support from Australia, to fortify our rice with extra nutrition in the future, improving the health and well-being of all of our customers,” he said.

In addition to the t-shirts, SolRice will provide 1,000 bags and one tonne of rice as prizes for 1,000 lucky race participants. Miss SolRice, Camilla Grossmith will also be on hand at the event as well as G’day Solomon Islands Fun Run Ambassador Sharon Firisua, a home-grown track and field Olympian.

Fun Run participants will have the option of completing a 3km walk or 5km run and will be treated to a healthy breakfast at the conclusion of the event.

Registration for the event is free. Register as an individual, or get together with your workmates, family, friends or a sports group to register as a team.
