Fisher's Ghost Fun Run

The Fisher's Ghost Fun Run has a long and colourful history. The race was first run on Sunday November 2, 1975 with a 10am start. In those days the run started in the grounds of the 1st Signal Regiment at Ingleburn Army Camp and finished at Bradbury Oval. Around 1000 entrants took part in that first race which was won by Newcastle runner Brian Morgan in 40 minutes and 52 seconds. The run has seen a few different venues from Ingleburn Army Camp, to Menangle Road, to Mt Annan Gardens and more recently to the beautiful and safer grounds of the University of Western Sydney.

The race has been organised every year by the Campbelltown Joggers Club. The club held its first run on January 11, 1976 at Bradbury Oval and has been meeting there ever since! Campbelltown Joggers welcomes runners and walkers of all abilities, with the main emphasis being on having fun while keeping fit. New members are welcome to turn up and try with no obligation to join. The club's website can be found at http://www.campbelltownjoggers.org.au/
