Mar 11 - Run for Olivia International Women's Day Fun Run - Scone NSW

Run for Olivia Inglis to mark International Women’s Day

A four kilometre Fun Run and community markets will be held 11 March 2017 at the Bill Rose Sports Complex in Scone to celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), an annual global event which recognises the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. 

The community, sporting clubs, schools and families are invited to participate in the IWD Fun Run and also to fundraise for The Olivia Inglis Eventing Scholarship.  The scholarship for young eventing riders was established in memory of Scone teenager Olivia Inglis who tragically died at the 2016 Scone Horse Trials whilst competing. At the initiative of the Scone Horse Trials Organising Committee and with the support of the Inglis family, Equestrian NSW has set up the Olivia Inglis Eventing Scholarship. The scholarship is to be awarded annually and provide emerging riders with funding to support their training and competition programme. 

Upper Hunter Shire Council is organising the Fun Run and market day which will include food stalls, live music and kids entertainment including face painting, bungee run, jumping castle, ballooning and more with ‘Sparkles the Clown’.

Fun Run registration is only $5 per person or $10 for a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids under 12 years).  All proceeds from registration fees goes towards the Olivia Inglis Eventing Scholarship.  

Registration to participate in the Fun Run and sponsorship forms can be downloaded at, collected at Council’s Administration Centre in Scone, Scone Sports Store and the Scone Visitor Information Centre or by emailing . 

You can also register on the day at 7.30am on Saturday 11 March.  The Fun Run starts at 8am and markets and entertainment from 8.30am.

There are some great prizes to be won on the day for first past the finishing line as well as raffles and prizes for the participant who raises the most money through sponsorship.
