FAMILY is key at the Tongala Football and Netball Club.

And the club wants to see you and your family as part of their fun run.

Just weeks out from the start of the football and netball season, and with pre-season training well and truly in full swing, the club will offer some extra preparation, or the opportunity to have a bit of fun with family and friends on February 24.

Starting and finishing at the clubrooms from 8am, there is an opportunity to take part in a 10km run, a 5km walk or run, as well as a 3km kids run.

For the younger ones not interested in running on the day there will also be a jumping castle.

The event has been organised with the goal of raising money to help the football and netball club cover costs for the 2019 season.

Rather than asking for donations from the community, the club has chosen to put on the community event.

Entry costs will go towards small things throughout the season the club needs to spend money on, such as paying umpires for matches and buying equipment that is used throughout the season.

Entry to the event is $35 before the day, which will include a singlet for the runners as well as breakfast on the day.

Entry on the day will be $20, with no extras.
