THE Arthurs Seat Challenge is an annual 6.7 kilometre fun run and walk from Rosebud to the top of Arthurs Seat.

The event, which finishes at Seawinds Gardens, is held to promote and raise money for the Fit to Drive program provided free to students in schools on the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston.

Fit to Drive focuses on personal safety, responsibility, and strategies to make young people safer on the road.

The program aims to reduce road trauma by changing attitudes and behaviours of young drivers and passengers.

BlueScope Western Port has supported the program since it began in 2002.

Sponsorship coordinator, Amanda Burston said Fit to Drive program “is directly aligned with our company’s core values of keeping people safe and supporting our local community”.

“It’s been remarkable to see the growth, expansion and significant reduction in young driver fatalities and accidents across the peninsula,” she said.

Major partners for this year’s Arthurs Seat Challenge are BlueScope Western Port, the Mornington Peninsula News Group (publisher of this newspaper), Your Community Bank Rye/Dromana/Rosebud, and Spicy Web.

The Arthurs Seat Challenge will start at 8.30am on Sunday 11 November at the corner of Jetty and Point Nepean roads, Rosebud.

Registrations can be made online at and forms will be available on the day from 7.30am at Rosebud Primary School.
