GIO Oz Day 10K Wheelchair Road Race

Monday 26 January 2015

About

Wheelchair athletes from across the globe will descend upon Sydney for the 26th annual GIO Summer Down Under Series, with the highlight event, the GIO Oz Day 10K, taking place on Australia Day in The Rocks.

Australia's Kurt Fearnley OAM, will be returning for his 19th consecutive year, hoping for a win in the Open Men's category. He will face off with athletes from Japan, Canada, USA, South Africa and UK.

The stars of tomorrow will race alongside their heroes in the Oz Day 10K and the public is invited for free to come and celebrate and cheer them on from 9am along the spectacular course around The Rocks, starting and finishing in Alfred St, Circular Quay.

There will be a general public engagement area with a free barbecue breakfast and a chance to "race on rollers" (experience sitting and pushing one of these road racing chairs).
