A RERUN is on. Federal Labor Isaacs MP Mark Dreyfus will run against state Labor Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson this month to raise money for Edithvale CFA.
The comrades faced off last year in the Edithvale CFA All Fired Up Fun Run and are set to compete again on Sunday 25 March over 5km.
“Tim just beat me home last year, but I’ve been in training, running on Mordialloc beach and am quietly confident I’ll be able to turn the tables this year,” Mr Dreyfus said.
“The CFA is one of the great institutions of our community and whatever happens I’ll be pleased to do my bit to support this great community organisation.”
Mr Richardson won the three-way race against Mr Dreyfus and Edithvale CFA brigade captain Graham Fountain last year.
“I’m still feeling alright about holding first place – I’ve been running up and down Bicentennial Park and the training definitely feels good, but you never know what might happen,” Mr Richardson said.
“Win or lose, this event is all about supporting the great work of our local CFA and I’m especially proud to be helping them move in to their brand new fire station soon.”
The 2018 Edithvale CFA All Fired Up Fun Run will be held on 25 March and Registrations can be made at allfiredupfunrun.com.au online.
