The Nepean River Run offers stunning scenery along the Nepean River, following the Great River Walk pathway from Tench Reserve to Cassola Place. Turning here, you’ll make your way back to Yanhai Nepean Crossing (pedestrian bridge) to cross the Nepean River.
The shared, sealed pathways will take you along the banks of the Nepean River to Penrith Valley Bridge, where you’ll cross returning to Tench Reserve. The beautiful river set against the backdrop of the Blue Mountains makes this longer option one of our favourites in the NAB RunWest Virtual Series.
The NAB RunWest Virtual Series showcases some of Western Sydney’s best running and walking locations, with a range of challenges from 4km to 12km.
You can enter by yourself, family or with a friend, and you can do them at your own pace, in your own time. Running from 23 October – 30 November, you can choose from up to eight challenges, with something for all fitness levels and abilities.
Whilst we encourage participants take on the challenges in the prescribed locations, if that doesn’t suit, you can simply run the distance in a location that does!
Entry is free and you’ll receive a downloadable participant bib, finisher certificate, and the chance to win spot prizes throughout November. We’ve even got FREE finisher medals for you – all you need to pay is the postage!ENTER NOW FOR FREE
