SunFest Community Walk

Join your neighbours, friends and family at the SunFest Community Walk on Sunday 19th March 2017.

In 2017, the SunFest Community walk will be held in memory of beloved local resident fitness trainer Rachel Tyquin who was mainly known for her ongoing efforts to help people be at their healthiest.

Rachel’s was well known for all her fitness classes and walks around Sunbury for many years and was loved by all.

Rachel was sadly taken from Sunbury last year and everyone felt the loss.

This Walk/Run is to represent Rachel and her passion for life and others.

The walk/run is also for the loved ones left behind, that is why supporting Victims of Crime (Forget Me Not) was chosen.

Victims of Crime gives advice and connects victims to Support Services such as Victims Assistance Program.

The cost is $5pp. Registration can be either on the Saturday at the SunFest Information Tents or Sunday.

The Walk/Run commences at 9am.


We welcome and encourage all families, sporting clubs and businesses to join us in this community event.

We would love to see all participants come dressed up. Anything from the 70’s right through to present! Bring out the lycra, leotards, tights and legwarmers! If you don’t want to dress up that is perfectly fine too.
