Date announced for Run with the Wind 2015

Get your running shoes on and get training, as the date for this year’s Run with the Wind has been set for Sunday, 11 October 2015.

Like last year, we will be having a 5km course and a 10km course. Cash prizes will be awarded in the 10km race for the first, second and third places in the male and female categories; and a special Local Community award will be given to the overall winner from either Tarago, Lake George or Bungendore. Children under the age of twelve can enter for free and discount codes will be advertised for the local residents.

We are seeking for partners who wish to participate in the Farmers’ Market at the fun run on the day; please contact us at or (02) 8031 9900 if you are interested. We also welcome any other suggestions on how to improve the event and benefit the businesses in Tarago.

Worlds biggest study on Wind Farms and Health published

The latest study published on wind farms and health was the world’s largest study into the safety of wind energy technology, commissioned by Health Canada and released in November 2014. You can view the summary of results on Health Canada’s website at here.

The study involved 17 different models of wind turbines, 1,238 homes, 4,000 hours of acoustic data, two separate provinces, objective and subjective measures of health, an expert committee of government, academic and industry experts, alongside several international advisers. The $2.1 million study, conducted over six months, found no link between the operation of wind turbines and dizziness, migraines, heart disease, blood pressure, diabetes, heart rate, cortisol levels or measured quality of sleep.

We listed previous evidence reviews into this issue that found no scientific evidence in our media release.
