Athletes from all over the country will converge on the South West WA hotspot, including Australian sprint stars Trae Williams, Riley Day and Jack Hale.  The brainchild of local businessman Colin Piancentini in response to the changing social and economic climate in the South West, the race is seen as a way to drive people back to Bunbury.


Held at the Bunbury Recreation Ground, the Gift will feature a two-day programme of races enhanced by a series of activities to cater for every member of the family. Including lawn games, athletics clinics, yoga, 5km fun run, interactive activities, licensed trackside lounge, Wyalup Beach cafe, the expanding program will create a unique annual family event.


We are looking forward to welcoming athletes and supporters to our wonderful Bunbury Geographe.
