WITH 85 people set to put on their joggers and hit the path for the Great Strides Walkathon tomorrow, Warwick has the second highest number of pre-registrations in the state - organiser Clare McHugh von Stieglitz wants more.

"That's more than double the next walk's numbers. Help make Warwick the biggest for its First Great Strides Walkathon," she said.

The walkers will step into action at 2pm and Mrs von Stieglitz asked everyone to arrive at 1pm at Queens Park, off Park Rd near the weir and skate park.

"The day will include a sausage sizzle, face painting, giveaways, prizes and a visit from the local fire engine," she said.

"Prizes include an Australian Netball Diamonds shirt signed by Laura Geitz and a signed Team Australia shirt from Paralympian Carlee Beattie.

Registration is $20 for individuals, $40 family (max four people) $15 team per member (min four people).

Bring a picnic blanket or chairs, sunscreen, hat and sunglasses, bottled water, and don't forget to wear red on the day.

If the weather is so bad that council decides to close Queens Park, a post will be put on the website and on CFQ's Facebook pages.
