Lace up your runners and grab a water bottle - the Campbelltown City Challenge Walk is back on!

The annual event at the Australia Botanic Garden, Mount Annan was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, however it'll be back - and Covid-safe - this year.

To ensure the event is safe for everyone, organisers are staggering the starting times of the walk, so participants can maintain social distancing.

The walk, on Sunday, March 14, will once again offer six-kilometre and 11-kilometre tracks.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said he was happy locals would be able to take part in the active event once again.

"I'm delighted to see this event back this year after it was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19," he said.

"This is a great way to spend a morning walking around the beautiful Australian Botanic Garden at Mount Annan and enjoy one of our great natural assets.

"Whether you're an experienced walker, someone looking for an opportunity to kick-start your fitness journey, or just looking for something to do with family or friends on a Sunday morning, then this is a fantastic event."

Registrations are available now at campbleltown.nsw.gov.au, until Wednesday, March 10.

Only 1000 people will be able to register for the event, and all registrations must be completed before the day.

The online entry fee is $15 and there are a range of categories for participants to enter, including as teams or individuals.

Winners will be announced via the council website, social media and in print.

Unfortunately to maintain social distancing a presentation will not take place and trophies will be mailed directly to winners.
