Dubbo Mudrunners and Parkrunners are set to enjoy the convenience of a new bubbler at Sandy Beach through a $3,208 grant from the Federal Government, announced by Member for Parkes Mark Coulton.
Mr Coulton met with committee members from Titan Macquarie Mud Run yesterday to congratulate them on their successful application, which has been funded under Round Four of the Stronger Communities Programme (SCP).
“The water bubbler will be installed on the Tracker Riley Cycleway at Sandy Beach, which is home to the Parkrun Dubbo start and finish line,” Mr Coulton said.
“This new infrastructure will ensure local fitness enthusiasts can stay hydrated during fantastic community events such as the Mud Run and Parkrun.
“I am very pleased to congratulate Titan Macquarie Mud Run on their grant, and I have no doubt this project will be much appreciated by Dubbo locals.”
On 31 July 2018, the Australian Government announced the launch of Round Four of the SCP.
The Australian Government funding commitment for Round Four is $22.5 million, with funding up to $150,000 for each electorate. A maximum of 20 projects are being funded in each electorate, with successful projects receiving a grant between $2,500 and $20,000.
More information about further successful projects in the Parkes electorate will be made available in coming weeks.
