Geelong Riverfest rescheduled

As a result of the recent inclement weather and river conditions, Geelong Riverfest, sponsored by Programmed will now take place on Sunday, 23 October 2016.

Race the 8 Cancelled
Unfortunately due to this change, we will not be holding the ‘Race the 8’ Fun Run. Your registration fee can either be a donation to the Give Where You Live Foundation or we are more than happy to arrange a refund. Please contact the Give Where You Live Foundation if you have any questions.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, however the decision to reschedule Riverfest has been taken out of our hands and your safety remains our number one priority.

Sunday, 23 October 2016
We look forward to seeing you down on Barwon River on Sunday, 23 October for Riverfest day! All of our Rowing Crews and Dragon Boat teams have worked hard with our wonderful volunteer coaches and we’re excited to see how the competition plays out.

Make sure you support our crews with a donation to their fundraising page. All crews are raising valuable funds for the Feed Geelong Appeal, fighting against hunger in our region.
