For more than a decade, the staff at Marsdens Law Group have been lacing up their runners, gathering their family and friends and heading to the starting line of the annual Marsdens Law Group Fisher's Ghost Fun Run.

A group of around 40 people affiliated with the law firm participated last year, hopping out of bed early and preparing to walk, jog, or run the course and, it will likely be the same this year.

“The run is a great family event for the Macarthur community,” the firm’s marketing manager Allison James said. 

“Our staff take their kids, mums, dads and grandparents. We have secretaries pushing children in prams, solicitors running and of, course Jim and his whole family normally participate.”

MLG’s senior partner Jim Marsden (OAM) always leads by example. As well as inspiring his staff, Mr Marsden hits the track with his children and grandchildren.

The firm’s participants are a mix of funseekers out to just enjoy a little exercise and some enthusiasts who know what they’re doing and are out to beat the clock.
