    Rockdale Fun Run

    The Albie Thomas Rockdale Fun Run takes place on Sunday 25 May at the Peter Depena Reserve Dolls Point.

    The Rockdale Fun Run has been renamed The Albie Thomas Rockdale Fun Run in memory of our most famous athlete Albie Thomas OAM who passed away late last year.

    Albie was a local Rockdale City resident and represented Australia at three Olympic Games and broke a number of world records. Albie was instrumental in the organisation of the Rockdale City Community Fun Run/Walk since its inception.


    Albie trained many young people in the St George Area and was a Life Member of the St George Athletics Club after joining in 1951. He was the President at the St George Athletics Club for many years. 

    Proceeds from the event go to the Knights of St George Heart Association a charity which Albie was very passionate about. The Knights of St George Heart Association supports the Cardiothoracic Surgery Unit at St George Hospital and has raised over $1.25M for the Cardiothoracic Unit.
