An Athletics event (styled after Stawell Gift) to be run as a complementary event to the Australia Day Kilcoy Horse Racing Carnival. The event, sanctioned by Australian Athletics associations will be included in the official calendar for professional athletics.
It will include runners from across Australia and be run across heats, Semi-Finals and Finals. The event will be a celebration of Australia and its sporting history. It will have a uniquely “country” atmosphere in the midst of a traditional Rural community.
Key to the event will be the very active local Diggers groups whose National pride will guide the celebrations on this special day.
