The Summer Down Under Wheelchair Road Racing Series is the highest profile wheelchair sporting event in Australia. The Series has grown from a single road race to an international competition, with both elite Australian and international athletes competing in track and road events in January each year. In 2019, the Oz Day 10K celebrated 30 years of racing and we thank our Major Sponsor GIO for supporting this event in this 30th year.
