Durack on Wheels was held on Thursday 24th August 2017. This wonderful community event, held annually, promotes safe and healthy outdoor activity, as well as our partnerships within the community. This year Hector the Road Safety Cat started over 130 riders, both students and families, on a three-kilometre circuit that wound its way from Flinders Park through the Durack golf course and lakes. The aim for all participants was to complete as many laps as they could in the time allowed. Along the way, they had their speed checked by the police radar and could visit the Army Sallyman, for a quick refreshment.
Upon returning to Flinders Park, the riders were treated to more entertainment with glitter faces and giant bubbles from Fairy Megan, coffee and information from The Police Community Engagement Van, fruit slushies which were made on the COPAL Smoothie Bike and an opportunity to engrave your bike with Neighbourhood Watch.
Prizes were given to the best dressed bike, fastest speed and most laps in each year level, with students receiving a $100 gift voucher. A fantastic skateboard, donated by Spokes, was also given as a lucky door prize.
A very big thank you to our wonderful sponsors and helpers: The Heights Durack, Power Concepts, Spokes NT, Lia Finocchiaro MLA, Darwin Runners Club, Ace Traffic Control, Neighbourhood Watch, US Marines, Army Sallyman, Police Community Engagement Team, Top End Linemarkers and our staff. Without their support this community event would not be possible.
