Edgell Bathurst Jog Supporting healthy communities
As the custodian of the Edgell brand, Simplot Australia is the major sponsor of the Edgell Bathurst Jog. The 7.5 km family fun run was first held in 1976 and over the years the event has attracted more than 45,000 people. Proceeds from the fun run are donated to charities in Bathurst.
The Committee decided to cancel the 2020 Edgell jog due to the Corona Virus pandemic, but it's back bigger and stronger in 2021! This year the jog will be held on Sunday 19 September.
