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

The event is taking place on Sunday 1 September 2019 with registrations open at 7:30 am for a 9.00 am race start plus activities operating from 8:00 am to 2.00 pm. Over 2,000 participants expected to attend. Information about the event and registrations can be found on the Centennial Parklands website here.
Please consider your activities on Sunday 1 September 2019 and plan for access restrictions. 
Please note, all Centennial Parklands Gates are scheduled to open/close as per normal operation times on the day.
All roads inside the Grand Drive loop will be temporarily closed to public vehicle access from 6.00 am (gate opening hours) until 11.00 am to allow us to safely facilitate the event.  Grand Drive itself will remain open as per normal.
Centennial Parklands Rangers will be positioned at the corner of Grand Drive and Dickens Drive West, as well as Grand Drive and Parkes Drive to manage road closures.
A drop off zone will be in on Grand Drive near Homestead Café on event day.
The horse track will be closed from Café Corner to the Ian Potter Children's Wild Play Garden chicane from Saturday 31 August to Sunday 1 September.  Horses will have access through Robertson Road Gates as normal, however a full circuit of the Horse Track cannot be completed on these days.
There will be no public parking permitted until 11.00 am on roads within the Grand Drive loop due to the closures in place. There will be some parking restrictions on Grand Dr near Homestead Café and Hamilton Dr for event operations. All other roads remain open with regular public parking available.
