Since starting the Flinders Athletics Club in 1979, Toby shaped and contributed to the lives of so many people. Toby sadly passed away in 2014 after a battle with Motor Neurone Disease.
The 4k event also features a 'dash for cash' thanks to Flinders Athletics Club.
The twilight dash will reward the female and male winner of each lap of the 4km twilight course. The winner/s of the first 3 laps will receive a $100 prize and the winner/s of the last lap will receive $200.
You must complete the 4km course within 24 mins (male) and 28 mins (female) to be eligible for any prize money.
The twilight dash finish line will be just before the finish line for the first 3 laps and will be on the race finish line for the last lap. All positions will be judged by an Athletics SA official.
All entrants in the 4km race will be automatically entered in the Twilight Dash.
