The fabled Willaura Farm to Pub run will return for its 16th installment this year.
The unique event will once again begin at the Old Joyce Farm in Willaura, heading along the infamous Sandy Lane before reaching the Willaura Recreation Reserve.
Five, eight or 16 kilometre walks, runs and rides are available on the day to cater for a wide-range of people, from competitive runners to families wanting to enjoy the community event.
"It is all a a bit of fun but it is a serious running event for those involved in the handicap section," Willaura Farm to Pub committee member Heather Fleming said.
Upwards of 150 people are expected to take part in the event this year which carries with it an interesting origin story.

"It all started with the Joyce brothers having a bet of who would beat the others in a race from the farm to the pub," Mrs Fleming said.
"It was just a bit of fun to start with but then it got bigger and turned into a great fundraiser for the whole community to get involved with."
"Three or four years ago the Joyce farm was sold so the community took over the running of the event."
Despite the pub in the town no longer running, a pop-up pub will open at the Willaura Recreation Reserve to continue the event's tradition.
Funds raised from the event will go to mental health organisation Beyondblue.
"It is a big family event with people of all ages welcome to join in," Mrs Fleming said.
"It is also entirely volunteer run so we appreciate the help we get from everyone who lends a hand and we are always keen for new people to help where they can too."
Registrations for the event close on Monday morning with more information available at farmtopub.org
