FEET are ready to hit the beach, bush and bitumen once again as the Maclean Lions Club 3Bs Fun Run for 2014 at Brooms Head fast approaches.

Runners and walkers will take to the course on June 22 to raise money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, and Maclean Lions Club's Ken Crampton said there was plenty to get excited about.

"There are 10km and 5km runs, 10km and 5km walks, and a new event this year, a 3km coffee and whale watch walk that takes you along the beach, past the snack shack up to the lookout, and back to the bowls club for a cool ale," Mr Crampton said.

If one of those doesn't appeal to you, then head along to support the rest of the participants.

Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for juniors and $20 for the family, with all proceeds to go towards the charity.

No money is taken out for trophies, printing or advertisements - these costs are sponsored by the Brooms Head Bowls Club and the local media.

Entry forms are available at bike shops and gyms around the Clarence Valley or - for those who like to leave things to the last minute - you can enter on the day.

Phone Ken Crampton on 6645 3253 to sign up or gather more information.
