The three-month Ararat Active8 Festival will launch on September 10.

ARARAT will again be getting active throughout spring during the Activ8 festival.

A launch will be held on September 10, from 2pm at the Ararat College Trade Training Centre.

Guest speakers will include Ararat Australia Day Healthy Living Award recipient Kelli Fellini and internet inspiration Jessica Hay, who gained widespread admiration as she blogged her journey from being obese and uninspired towards becoming a marathon runner.

The aim of the three-month festival is to encourage people to get healthy and active as they come out of the depths of a cold winter.

The festival will include existing activities such as parkrun and the Ararat Fitness Centre Adult Swimming classes, returning Active8 specialities such as the Kelli Fellini Fitness Session, and new programs such as Netball Victoria’s social Rock Up Netball and Golf Victoria’s Play Golf introductory program.
