A casual conversation between two local Coober Pedy girls in 2009 resulted in The Great Breakaways Bolt. The 'Bolt' is an annual, marathon style, fundraising event for a different local community group or cause every year. The money raised from entry fees and donations goes to a cause chosen by the 'Bolt' Committee.
The 'Bolt' travels from the Breakaways finishing at the Town Oval where the event is wrapped up with a barbecue. Participants can walk, run or ride the distance as a personal challenge or as a group. In 2015 the track will be extended to the full marathon length of 42km.
This is a walk, run or ride that you have never experienced before. For more information please refer to event webpage.
Spectators are welcome to cheer on participants.
