I like running here because I can be out in the beautiful Bendigo bushland within a matter of minutes after leaving my front door.
I initially got into running cross country as I was able to fit it in around my university course commitments (I studied Outdoor Education and was away a lot).Running was something I could train for pretty much anywhere I was and if I couldn’t make a race it didn’t matter.
I run for my mental health: The buzz I get from running is unmatched to anything else I’ve tried!
Once you start running in Bendigo you won’t stop!
For me, running is a great effort for reward hobby, the harder you work, the better you get.
Bendigo has a great running community where everybody is made to feel welcome and you’ll develop great friendships within these groups, too.
I love the feeling of freedom. Being able to run through the bush by myself or with a bunch of mates and just being able to forget about all the troubles in the world.
