Rotary Sporting Event Directory

Rotary Clubs around the country own or manage a variety of sporting events as fundraising activities. This Rotary Sport Directory is a listing of sporting events owned and/or operated by Rotary Clubs for this purpose.

As well as becoming a single reference point to help promote Rotary sporting events, our goal is to develop this section of the site into a ‘knowledge sharing resource’ that will assist clubs with event management challenges.

It all starts with a catalogue of events, so if your club runs a sporting event, could you please ensure that it is added to this directory? Thank you.

Beats Cycle for Hope
Beats Cycle For Hope is a FREE 22km cycle challenge from Portland Victoria Australia to the spectacular beach of Bridgewater Bay. The event raises funds to support local families dealing with cancer, with a particular focus on the cancer carers.

The challenge will begin with the first wave of cyclists leaving at 9.30am. Participants will ride the 22km course of gentle undulating hills of Bridgewater Road, before making their way to the stunning scenery of Bridgewater Bay. This free event is organised by the Rotary Club of Portland and was initiated and inspired by Portland’s Paul Beattie, who battled lung cancer for seven years, sadly passing away January 2013. While the event is free to enter, participants are encouraged to make a donation. The committee is encouraging families, schools, clubs, friends and individuals to challenge themselves and take part in the event.

The non-competitive cyclo-sportive event provides a great challenge as you take on the six peaks of Canberra – Mount Stromlo, Red Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain and Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum).

There are two ride lengths and you have the option to choose which peaks you climb and which ones you by-pass.

The event is a major fundraising opportunity for Woden Rotary and their supported charities.

Longer ride (up to 118 km) or shorter ride (up to 83 km)

Take on all six peaks for a total elevation gains of about 2,000 m on the longer ride and 1,500 m on the shorter ride – but you can bypass the peaks if necessary for less climbing
