IT will be federal versus state at next month’s Carrum Coast Guard Around The River Fun Run when Isaacs federal MP Mark Dreyfus and Carrum state MP Sonya Kilkenny face off against each other.

Registrations are open now for the annual fun run, hosted by the Carrum Coast Guard to raise funds for the volunteer organisation, which will take place on Sunday 21 February.

“Sonya is a formidable athlete, but I’m quietly confident that with my training I’ll put in a good show,” Mr Dreyfus said.

“In the end, I’ll just be happy to help raise some funds for the Carrum Coast Guard.”

It will be Ms Kilkenny’s first time as a participant in the fun run.

“The Carrum Coast Guard Around the River Fun Run is for a great cause.  I’m really looking forward to participating and also giving Mark a run for his money,” she said.

“I encourage everyone to get involved and support the Carrum Coast Guard.”

The third annual Carrum Coast Guard Around The River Fun Run around Patterson River will be held on Sunday 21 February and there will be 6km and 12km events and a free 350 metres kids run.
