There’s something for everyone at the community fun run in Mosman

Get ready for a whole day of entertainment, sports and solidarity on 16 June when the Mini-Mos Community Fun Run and Fair returns.

Celebrating its 42nd anniversary, this is Australia’s longest-running, consecutively held community-run event, attended by families, children of all ages and elite athletes.

Mini-Mos features two, five and 10 kilometre road races around the streets of Mosman, with the two kilometre race totally traffic-free. Races are followed by the Mini-Mos Fair on the grounds of Mosman Public School.

Event director Ronel Engelbrecht says that last year the fun run raised over $100,000 and the goal is to raise a similar amount in 2024.

“Funds went directly to Mosman Public School and its nominated charity, Be Centre. The funds were used for additional teaching resources, playground equipment and a new sensory garden in our kindy playground,” Ronel adds.

This year, in addition to teaching resources, funds will go towards Mosman Public School’s five-year masterplan, which includes a scope of works for playground and landscape-focused projects to be undertaken by the P&C Association over the next five years.

“New shade sails over the Gouldsbury playground and an outdoor yarning circle are expected to be rolled out in 2024,” Ronel says. Students have chosen a new charity partner for 2024/2025 – Kids Giving Back. “We have that charity for two years, and we will fundraise for them,” Ronel explains.

Participants can register up until 20 minutes before each race, with the 10km the first race, starting at 7am. There will be no manual paper entries on race day this year, but entries can be lodged via the event’s website.

Participants will also be competing for cash prizes. For the 10km, a cash prize is awarded to the first three place-getters overall (for both male and female): $1,500 for first place; $750 for second and $500 for third.

There will also be cash prices for record breakers. A $250 premium prize will be given for a winning time that breaks the 10km course for men (29:58 minutes) and women (34:27 minutes).

A $500 ‘extreme premium’ additional cash prize is on offer for a winning course record time of less than 29:30 minutes for men and 34 minutes for women.

Also, every runner who completes the course will be entitled to collect a commemorative medal, and place-getter certificates will be awarded to the top three placed runners in the under 20 age/gender category for all races.

The Mini-Mos Fair will run after the races on the grounds of Mosman Public School and features live entertainment, market stalls, food, games, rides and activities for all ages.

“There’s a kindy animal farm, a bouncy castle and market stalls that cater for adults and children,” Ronel says. “And then we also have games throughout the day within the venue and dance performances from the school and the local community. We will also have a live auction. So there’s a lot to do!”

Come along for a day of sportsmanship, family entertainment and community spirit. For more information and to enrol, visit
