For walkers, runners and everyone in between, ANT Fitness' Born to Run festival is set to run for its third year in a row at Portland on Sunday, July 14.
The gym has partnered with the Foundations to allow access on the old trails behind the cement works, with markets also to be held on the day.
"It will be a bit of a history run and there will be a great atmosphere with plenty of people about, bringing the community together," ANT Fitness owner and event organiser Andrew Neville said.
He said the day was about reminding the community to be active by getting involved in a local running event and staying motivated in the cold weather.
"They also don't have to travel out of town, it's right in their backyard," he said.
Mr Neville said with online registrations available this year it had sparked interest from people out of the area to come to Portland.
"We have people coming from Bathurst so the word's out. We've exceeded our numbers since last year, we had 50 for the 10km and this year I expect we'll hit triple figures," he said.
He also said people didn't have to run, they could simply walk and take in what Portland had to offer.
"The 5km is popular to run or walk, the day is designed for everyone, you don't have to be a regular runner and everyone gets participation medals and there will be trophies for places," he said.
The first race will be the 10km commencing at 9am followed by the Foundations 5km at 10.30 and the Active ANTS at 11.30.
Online entries close on Friday, July 13 however entries will also be available on the day.
