The inaugural Hunter Runners Ball was held in Newcastle on Saturday 4 October, to support IMP and celebrate the growing running community in the Hunter region.

And it’s on again!

On Saturday 22 August Newcastle City Hall will be home to running enthusiasts who will transform their running skills to dancing skills to raise money for IMP.

Last year the event raised more than $4,000 for IMP and we are sure this year will blow that figure out of the park!

We would like to thank the organising committee – Penny and Simon Redhead, and Scott and Ruth White, and IMP Ambassador and MC Dave Robertson – for coming on board again to support IMP.

Thank you also to the entire Newcastle running community that made the night such a success last year – we hope to see you all, and more, again this year! It was fantastic to meet some local runners and supporters, and we very much look forward to growing the Hunter Runners Ball in 2015!
