Miss being outside and active during lockdown? The Recovery Run Newcastle is a one time event celebrating coming out of lockdown, and a return to community events. The run offers 5km or 10km courses, taking place along Newcastle’s scenic foreshore including Foreshore Park, Wharf Road, Camp Shortland near Horseshoe beach, the Break-wall and Bathers way.
