In collaboration with the Indigenous Marathon Foundation (IMF), Centennial Parklands will host the 2019 Father’s Day Warrior Run and Festival, celebrating the great men in your life. 

The Warrior Run is open to people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities and is one of the main events of the Father's Day Festival. The Warrior Run includes a 2km kids' dash, 5km and 10km run - register now!

The Festival also includes a variety of Indigenous market stalls, traditional and contemporary Indigenous music, food, dance and entertainment. This will provide an unforgettable cultural atmosphere that will bring together local Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.
